How much of each zoning district does a community need?
Generally, this is determined by projections of population and development trends, which are taken into consideration and reflected in the Future Land Use Element of the Comprehensive Plan. Market conditions also play a big role in the detailed mix and proportion of land on the zoning map.

Likewise, the FLUP and community goals may encourage or discourage certain types or intensities of land use.
