Zoning Ordinance - General Information
The City's Zoning Ordinance, which is administered by the Community Development Department, was adopted by the City Council in 1976 and is updated from time to time. It controls the size of parcels, height of buildings, and landscaping of structures such as fences, buildings, garages, and additions to houses and businesses. The Zoning Ordinance specifies the types of land uses allowed in different parts of the city. For example, you cannot conduct a commercial business in a residential area, except for limited uses allowed under a homeoccupation permit which is subject to certain conditions. The Zoning Ordinance is designed to protect city residents from conflicting activities being conducted near their homes and businesses.
If you think someone may be violating the Zoning Ordinance or if you have a question about the ordinance, call the Community Development Department at (805) 388-5360.
