    Atlas Map Books

    Digital Sewer Atlas Map Book



    Updated on a regular basis by the Geomatics Division, the Digital Sewer Atlas Map Book has been created to allow you to see the City's sewer infrastructure, both exisiting and proposed. Also included are sewer lines (type and size), manholes, gas, steam and hydro lines - where known or collected, right of way, street names, some street addresses, and building outlines. The map has been assembled and divided into 221 individual maps saved to portable document format (PDF) for easy viewing.

    Open the Digital Sewer Atlas Map Index, pan or zoom to the desired area and click on the Map Number. This will open the individual map, and it is now ready for viewing or printing.

    The Geomatics Division makes every effort to update the Sewer Atlas in a timely fashion. It should be noted that proposed sewers may refer to sewers to be constructed, under construction, or actually constructed, but As-Built information is not yet available in the atlas. For further clarification, please contact the Geomatics Division.

    Updated on a regular basis by the Geomatics Division, the Municipal Address Map Book Atlas has been created to allow you to see municipal addresses, property outlines and street names.

    Zoning Districts Map



    The City of Windsor Zoning Maps indicate what category and uses are allowed on Private Property. The prefix of the zoning indicates the basic use, and the detailed use is specified by numbers; example RD 1.1 refers to a residential district (RD), that allows only single unit dwellings, existing duplex, or semi detached, as well as accessory uses (1.1). Other prefixes refer to C- commercial, M- manufacturing or industrial, I - Institutional, G - Green Space

    Please Note: Zoning can change weekly; each map has a date that is reflective of the update.
    For specific information on what uses are allowed for each zoning, please visit the 4th floor of City Hall. Formal responses are available by letter for a fee of $65.00. Zoning information given informally or over phone often leads to confusion; only formal responses should be relied upon, as zoning changes and related information are ever changing.
    To view various Zoning Maps, open the Map Index, zoom and pan to desired area and click the Map Number to open appropriate map in PDF format.
