    I don't know where to ask this, so sorry if this is in the wrong place.

    Anyhow, how do you know if you're in an ag zone?

    I noticed alot of codes, ours included, says 150 ft unless in an ag zone then it's 50 ft. Which leads me to believe there are ag zones within city limits.
    How can you find out where these zones are?

    Thanks

    Best place would be the County Zoning Department.

    Our county's website has online maps where you can find your status. Maybe yours has something similar.

    Your tax assessment should have it on it.

    Check out your city's website, look for "city planning". If they don't spell out the zoning in your area, just call city hall and ask somebody what your property is zoned and then ask them directly about the codes. If you don't want them to know what you are up to, don't ask about the codes, just zoning, and then go to this municipal code website and look them up yourself.
