What is a Rezoning?
A rezoning is required if the proposed use is permitted neither by right nor as a special exception under the property's current zoning classification. To apply reasonable conditions in addition to the regulations of the desired zoning classification, "proffers" must be submitted in writing with the application.

Typically, proffers relate to such things as use restrictions, timing/phasing of development, off-site improvements, additional aesthetic features, capital contributions and similar items not a part of the normal plan approval process.
