Zoning is a legislative process that divides a city into areas that specify allowable uses within those areas. 

Uses include:

  • Land use relating to residential, commercial, and industrial.
  • Building size, density, and character.

In the consideration of any application for a rezoning, zoning amendment, or a special use request or use permitted upon review, the Eudora Planning Commission and the Eudora City Commission determine whether the proposal conforms to the Comprehensive Plan and the Future Land Use Map or any other recognized plans, studies, or policies normally utilized to make land use decisions. 


The City of Eudora’s zoning regulations are enacted to implement the land use element of the Comprehensive Plan for the city and to:

  • Avoid undue concentration of population
  • Facilitate the adequate provision of transportation, water, sewage, schools, parks, and other public requirements
  • Lessen congestion in the streets
  • Prevent the overcrowding of land
  • Promote the health, safety, morals, and the general welfare of the city and its citizens
  • Provide adequate light and air
  • Secure safety from fire, panic, and other dangers
