Municipalities control the use of properties by means of zoning. It is a legal method of assigning certain areas for specific use or uses. Zoning serves a beneficial purpose. It may be for the purpose of use-based, regulating building height such as in areas near the airport, lot coverage, and similar characteristics, or a combination of the above mentioned. A good example would be an area zoned for residential use where only residential properties are permitted. A piggery, even a small one, would not be allowed in this area, since residents wouldn't enjoy the daily smell of pig dung. Similar to other states, the Tri-Cities, aim to promote and protect public health, safety and general welfare, with some consideration to its magnificent natural resources, like its rivers.
