What is the purpose of rezone?

A rezone, or zone reclassification, allows the reclassification of the parcel zoning as delineated on zoning maps and adopted by King County ordinance. Zoning on the parcel governs the permitted uses and development standards for properties in unincorporated King County. A rezone is also used to process p-suffix amendments, which are changes to site-specific conditions adopted by King County Council.
