|Zoning Code and Zoning Map|
The zoning code provides the "nuts and bolts" regulations that are used to implement the policies of the city's General Plan. Zoning laws are used to regulate the physical development of land and specify the areas in which residential, industrial, recreational or commercial activities may take place.
Zoning is also used to control other development regulations, such as signage, parking, and minimum yard requirements, more commonly referred to as setback requirements.
The zoning designation of a property is only one of many factors that can influence the development potential of a property. It is important that you contact Planning Division staff before you make a significant investment in your proposed project.
