PorchWebIt is important to check zoning before working on a project.  In broad terms, zoning tells you what property can be used for depending on its location in the city.  This is how a city tries to keep opposite kinds of uses, like heavy industrial and residential, separated from each other.  To check Sumner’s latest zoning, look at our Municipal Code.  Zoning is Chapter 18.
