A Zoning Map Amendment (rezoning) will rezone the district classification of a specific geographic area on a zoning map. A zoning change may address part of a parcel, single parcels or multiple parcels. An example may be changing a parcel from an office zoning district (which would only permit offices) to a commercial zoning district (which would permit offices and businesses.)
