Marco Island has five commercial zones ranging from C-1 to C-5:
C-1 zoning is for commercial and professional services and is intended to permit those uses which minimize pedestrian and vehicular traffic.C-2 zoning is for small scale shopping and personal needs. C-3 zoning is for a wider variety of goods and services in areas that have a higher degree of automobile traffic. C-4 zoning is to concentrate commercial development at the intersections of arterial roads where traffic impacts can readily be accommodated. C-5 zoning allows for a range of more intensive commercial uses and services. The C-5 district permits heavy commercial services such as full-service automotive repair, and establishments primarily engaged in construction and specialized trade activities.
