What is my property zoned?
The majority of land in the unincorporated area of Story County is zoned A-1 Agricultural. This district is primarily intended for agricultural uses. There are some areas of Story County that are zoned for residential, commercial, and industrial uses, as well as areas between Story City and Ames with a Greenbelt-Conservation zoning designation. Please email or call the Story County Planning and Development Department at (515) 382-7245 and we will be glad to help you find out how your property is zoned. You can also go to the County Assessor's page and, in most instances, the zoning is listed in the property report.County Assessor's Page
