What is the required zoning for each license type and how do I find out if a location meets the zoning requirements?

There are property zoning requirements for each type of license.  Properties must either be zoned commercial or industrial depending on the type of license.  Facilities are not allowed in areas zoned residential.  In addition, facilities are subject to setback distances from schools, law enforcement buildings, parks, and churches.  The following resources are available to assist you in determining the zoning of a property.
