Description:
Abstract:
This ArcInfo cover shows the zoning districts for the City of Lincoln and Lancaster County, NE. It does not show the zoning districts for the jurisdictional area of the incorporated towns and villages in and abutting Lancaster County. (See villagezone)
Purpose:
To regulate and restrict the height, number of stories, and size of buildings and other structures; the percentage of a lot that may be occupied; the size of yards, courts, and other open spaces; the density of population; and the location and use of buildings, structures, and land for trade, industry, residence, or other purposes.

Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
The attribute accuracy is in the near 100% range. The cover is built or cleaned each time any changes are made and acres are recalculated. A describe is done on the dataset to insure that there are the correct number of polygons and that there are no labelerrors.
Logical_Consistency_Report:
The dataset is topologically clean. Each valid polygon has a coded label point with attribute information attached. There are no sliver polygons and no lines are entered twice. There are no overshoots or undershoots (dangles). The coverage was built using ArcInfo
Completeness_Report:
The zoning boundaries are constantly changing and as such this dataset represents a snapshot in time. Accuracy of the attribute information is near 100%. As time permits the lines will be adjusted to match the underlying land base lines. Changes are made to this dataset any time a change of zone ordinance is passed by city council or a zoning resolution is passed by the county board.
Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
Accuracy will range from less than 6 inches to sometimes 25 feet or more. The reason is that the zoning lines should generally follow the street centerlines or a platted lot line. When the dataset was created this was generally the case. However as the underlying landbase for the county has benn shifted to match GPS corners for each section, there has not always been time to go back in and readjust the zoning boundary. As time permits, these boundaries will be adjusted to match the underlying centerlines or platted lot lines. It should be noted that sometimes the zoning boundary was not meant to follow any known boundary but was placed using a metes and bounds description.

Process_Step:
Process_Description:
The process to develop the Lancaster County Zoning dataset was started in 1993. The zoning lines were taken from an Intergraph .dgn file and brought into ArcInfo using Igdsarc. The Intergraph maps covered all of the City of Lincoln and a good part of Lancaster County. The remainder of the county was digitized into ArcInfo using a set of mylar zoning maps as a reference. The three mile jurisdiction line for the city was taken from another cover and put to the zoning cover. The jurisdiction lines for the towns which lie outside Lancaster County but whose jurisdiction falls within Lancaster County were added at a later date when data became available for the city limits of those towns outside Lancaster County.

Enumerated_Domain_Value_Definition:
This is the effective date of the change of zone. When the coverage was created every polygon was given the effdate of 10/12/93 since that was the effective date of the last change of zone we had posted on the Intergraph maps. If we change the zoning designation of a polygon by adding it to an existing polygon with the same zoning, we don't change the effdate in that polygon. The effdate is only changed for a new polygon. To find the actual effective date for any given change of zone there are separate covers for zoning changes for each year since 1998. They are named zonech98, zonech99 and so on. These covers contain the a change of zone number (CZNUM) and from that the effective date can be found.

Entity_and_Attribute_Overview:
The zoning cover contains line and polygon features that define the zoning for each particular polygon. Each polygon in the City of Lincoln and the 3 mile jurisdiction has an abbreviated zoning designation as defined by a zoning ordinance, which is Title 27 of the Lincoln Municiapl Code. Each polygon outside the 3 mile limit of Lincoln and outside the 1 or 2 mile jurisdictions of the other incorporated towns and villages also has an abbreviated zoning designation as defined by a County Resolution. The Ordinance as well as the Resolution can be found on the Planning Department website at <http://www.ci.lincoln.ne.us/city/plan/index.htm> and under 'Development Review' click on 'Zoning, Subdivision & Design Standards'
