How do I find out how my property is zoned?

You may view and search the city's official interactive zoning map at https://www.oskaloosaiowa.org/330/Zoning-Map-interactive-GIS or contact the building inspector or department director at (641) 673-7472 to look up the zoning designation at a particular address.
