Specific development standards and regulations are provided in the City's Zoning Code. The City's Zoning Code (also known as the "Zoning Ordinance") implements the general plan by providing the specific uses allowed and specific development and design requirements for each property in the City. The Community Development Department administers the City’s Zoning Code, which can be found in the City's Municipal Code Book, Title 10, Chapter 3.
Contact the department, or visit the City's Permit Center with questions on specific uses and requirements.
