    Development definitions

    Can someone supply the definitions to the following words as they relate to planning and zoning: (1) Zone (2) Area (3) District.
    If someone has a copy of Moskowitz and Lindbloom's, "Illustrated Book of Development Definitions," their definitions are what I'm looking for.

    Here ya go

    ZONE - A specifically delineated area or district in a municipality within which regulations and requirements uniformly govern the use, placement, spacing and size of land and buildings.

    AREA - no definition in this reference. PAS' Planners Dictionary defines it as a group of parcels or public spaces (Troy, OH)

    DISTRICT - A part, zone or geographic area within the municipality within which certain zoning or development regulations apply.
