|Planning & Zoning
The objective of Planning is to provide a framework for guiding the
community toward orderly growth and development by relating, balancing and harmonizing the physical, social, economic and aesthetic
features of the community as it responds to private sector initiatives.
The Comprehensive Plan for the City of El Dorado
establishes community-wide goals and serves as the basis for making zoning decisions. No zoning laws or plan, however, can provide for
the general public good and at the same time accomodate all individual interests. While there must be a proper balance between the public
good and individual interests, what is best for the community as a whole must prevail. Zoning amendments that are based on benefits to
individuals while becoming detriments to the community as a whole, have usually been declared invalid by the courts.
