What about zoning?
City zoning (land use) has mirrored the County’s zoning in place prior to annexation in the “donut hole”. In the last major annexation (the “Area 2” annexation in 2013), the City mirrored County zoning, and, in fact, reduced densities for some properties. In the City, the “R-S-12” zone (12,000 sq. ft. min. lot size) and “R-S-20” zone (20,000 sq. ft. min. lot size) are the most common designations for properties surrounding the “donut hole” in west Pasco. Any future zoning change would be for affected property owners to bring before the City Council for approval, just like the County.
