I am having a hell of a time cutting up the zoning maps of any county. I am trying to zone a very particular type of business that has to be 1000 feet away from residential, a church etc.. Is there a program that will locate those areas and things and basically show me where to go and build, rent or buy a building? If so , how can I get my hands on it. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Please e-mail me john@cornettaentreprises.com Thank you

Adult book store, huh?

If the municipality you are locating in doesn't have their zoning maps encoded into a GIS (geographic information system), you've probably got to resort to a scale. With GIS-based zoning maps, an adept user can create a query to find parcels that meet the distance requirements.

As far as renting or buying a building goes, that's best left to a commercial real estate professional -- can't offer any help from this end. Sorry ...

Perhaps the local planning/zoning office already has prepared such maps: ask them. They should be able to prove to you that sites are available or currently used.
