Abstract: The existing land use is based on research of the property appraisers file, permits, previous existing land use records and other sources. This is done each year and an effort is made to reflect existing land use as of October 31st of that year. Beginning in 2006, that date is reflected in the last field of the file. (effective-dt) Errors or descrepancies should be reported to the Planning Department.
Metadata elements shown with blue text are defined in the Federal Geographic Data Committee's (FGDC) Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata (CSDGM). Elements shown with a green asterisk (*) will be automatically updated by ArcCatalog. ArcCatalog adds hints indicating which FGDC elements are mandatory; these are shown with gray text.
