Zone Change

The City or an individual may wish to change a zone on a parcel of land. Any proposed Zone Change must be consistent with the City’s General Plan, in accordance with State law. In order to file a request for a Zone Change, applicants must complete the Legislative Application Form, submit all required materials, and pay the applicable fee(s). Review of the proposal will include a review and recommendation by the Planning Commission, and the City Council who will ultimately make the decision. In addition, another requirement of this application may be a Socio-Economic Cost/Benefit Analysis (prepared by staff) to evaluate the economic effects of the proposal.

For further information, please refer to the Development Process webpage (click here). If a Zone Change is contemplated, it is recommended that a potential applicant meet with Planning Division staff early (prior to filing a formal application) to discuss the idea or proposal. Go to the Contact Us page for further information.
