I am new at this and learning (hopefully). If I designate an area on my plan map for retail commercial development or industrial development, is that area then zoned as such, and off limits for other uses? Can a retail or industrial use later be denied in those respective areas? Or am I locked into approving that use? Suppose I want to preserve farmland, but I want a corner store at a particular crossroads. Can I designate that area for retail development but limit it to only one store and one gas station for example?
So many questions, sorry. Any help will be much appreciated. Thanks.
