    Answered . You will need to consult a land use lawyer. Some jurisdictions don't allow piecemeal rezoning, while others do.

    If you were in Maryland, you'd have to request a change by introducing an amendment or participate in what's called a "comprehensive rezoning" if your locality is currently undergoing that process.
