Scope and Content

This publication, entitled "Uniform Zoning Ordinance of the Town of Paragonah," states that the purpose of this ordinance is to promote the health, prosperity, convenience, safety, morals and order for the present and future inhabitants of Paragonah; to foster a rural environment and protect urban development; and to secure economy in government expenditures. In this zoning ordinance, the town board established a planning commission to oversee community development (chapter 2) and a board of adjustment to hear and decide appeals or requests for exceptions to the ordinances (chapter 3). In addition to defining these agencies, the zoning ordinance established zoning districts for mobile homes, single residential dwellings, commercial buildings and residential estates. It also defined regulations for buildings and established off street parking requirements. State law authorizes Utah cities and towns to establish zoning laws, planning commissions and boards of adjustment (Utah Code, Unannotated 10-9-1-30, 1988).
