Ordinance Regulations

In 1981 Missouri City adopted a Zoning Ordinance to regulate the use of land. The ordinance classifies uses of land into zones of commercial, residential, and industrial districts. Uses in established zones are required to follow district regulations for allowances with regard to height, area, architecture, landscaping, signage, and other categories. 

Zoning establishes minimum standards for the use of land and promotes the health, safety, and general welfare of the city and its residents.
