Today we found our zoning codes and our parcel numbers for our own homes. To do this we had to look up our houses on zoning maps and real estate databases. We also took a look in a book about architecture and read about some key terms like property lines. Mr. Walker printed out index cards with make believe building restriction lines or "BRLs" and gave us an example of how a piece of property may not be as flexible as we thought and you really just have to "deal with it" . To end the class we drew out an example from the architecture book onto a blank notecard and wrote our zoning codes at the bottom.
