Zoning in Spartanburg County

Spartanburg County is currently operating under two zoning ordinances—the Performance Zoning Ordinance in the Southwest Planning Area and the Unified Land Management Ordinance in the remainder of the County.  The sign regulations located in the Performance Zoning Ordinance apply to the entire unincorporated area of the County, as do the non-residential architectural design standards (only on Arterial and Collector streets throughout the County’s jurisdiction).  There are several Appearance Corridors that have been assigned across the County, and these are found in the Performance Zoning Ordinance, as well.

Neither ordinance assigns zoning classifications (such as residential, commercial, etc.) at the parcel level as do most traditional (or Euclidean) zoning ordinances.
