Zoning in the City of Tomball
Zoning is a system of land use regulation that controls the development of land in the corporate City limits. It is a legal mechanism by which the City of Tomball is able to regulate land uses so as to protect the public health, safety, and/or general welfare. The Zoning Map identifies different zones with the primary purpose of promoting adjacent land use compatibilities.

The City of Tomball’s Zoning Ordinance (Ordinance 2008-01) was initially adopted by City Council on February 4, 2008.

By viewing the most recent zoning map below, you may identify the zoning classification of any property that you are interested in. If you have further inquiries or are unsure of where a property falls within the Zoning Ordinance, you may contact the Community Development Department Coordinator at (281) 290-1405.

Once you have determined the zoning of your property, click the Land Use Matrix link to determine if a use is permitted.
