Franklin Park Borough has engaged in the practice of zoning since 1952. The Borough's Zoning Map and Ordinance direct the overall distribution and character of land uses. The zoning ordinance has directed the scale, density and character of development within the Borough. The Zoning Map is divided into seven zoning districts: four residential districts and three mixed-use districts. A brief description of these zones is provided below. A complete listing with descriptions, lot sizes and variations between uses and specific development standards can be found in the Borough Code.

R-1, R-2 - Single Family Residential: Combines the preservation of natural features and resources with low-intensity residential development suited to the natural conditions and rural character of portions of the Borough.

R-3, R-4 - Multifamily Residential: Provides a wide range of higher-intensity residential development in portions of the municipality with convenient and adequate access to the commercial and light industrial used and major transportation thoroughfares.

M-1 - Mixed use Residential/Commercial: Allows a mixture of low intensity commercial and residential uses to reflect the existing small town character and associated land use patterns.

M-2 - Mixed Use Residential/Commercial/Light Industrial District: Provides land area for high intensity residential development (up to twenty-four dwellings per gross acre) and commercial and light industrial uses adjacent to an interstate interchange. This would allow quick access to the region's transportation network.

M-3 - Mixed Use Residential/Commercial/Light Industrial District: Provides for mobile home park developments (at six dwelling units per gross acre) and commercial and light industrial uses which combine indoor and outdoor storage and activity.
