They adapt to the special needs of areas of the county and further allow Douglas County's Zoning Regulation to evolve as the planning and development needs and trends of specific areas change.

  1. To recognize special conditions in specific parts of the County which require specific regulation.
  2. To provide for the protection of special features in the natural and built environment of the County.
  3. To allow for change and adaptability to different needs and trends in land development.
  4. To encourage comprehensive development and environmental planning in the County.
  5. To provide flexibility in development and to encourage innovative design through comprehensively planned projects.
