Map Revisions

As part of the Zoning Consistency Project, the City is making a range of revisions to the Zoning Map.  The Zoning map is the visual illustration of the distribution of land uses.  By law, the Zoning Map must be consistent with the General Plan Land Use Map, which is being updated as part of the General Plan Update.  Consistency is determined based upon the matrix below.
The City is preparing an interactive map viewer, which will show the proposed changes to the Zoning Map.  You will be able to use this viewer to search for a property by address or assessor’s parcel number (APN), or you can pan around the map.  This interactive map will be available soon.
