About VAZO

The Virginia Association of Zoning Officials (VAZO) was organized in 1990 to perpetuate an organized professional support community for the maintenance of active communication.

Our primary goal is to formulate a healthy organizational network capable of sustaining the goals of the organization that is not reliant on a few individual personalities. In addition, we strive to:


  • Expand the awareness of professional administrators concerning the authority with which their positions are empowered.

  • Provide a reliable communication network for the use of administrators to develop solutions to various zoning problems.

  • Increase the visibility of the organization and develop an identity as a legitimate member of the public administration organizational community.

  • Provide high quality programs to members of the organization with consistently high standards of excellence.

  • Continue to improve member development.

  • Instill on the part of all members a desire to make VAZO the model for future organizations.

  • Develop a mentoring program among Virginia's zoning officials.
