CITY ZONING SYSTEM
WASHINGTON, March K
There are , now 320 cities in the
United States which have demark
ed the area within their boun
daries into nones, setting territory
apart for exclusive use as business
residence, industrial or transpor
tation property, the department
of commerce reported today In a
summary of conditions affecting
The -most marked progress was
made in this form of city planning
during 1924, when 62 municipali
ties adopted the system, fitting
the zones to the particular re
quirements of their localities.
"In adopting zoning ordinan
ces. the department's statement
said, "these cities, towns and vil
lage have sought to protect-home
owners, and other land owners,
in the , reasonable use of their
property. Zoning seeks so to
regulate the use to which build
ings may be put, the area of the
!o. which they may cover? and
"he'r height in different sections
of the city, that the land in each
Mstrict may be used for the pur-
