The City of Stockton has a Zoning Map that divides all of the land within the City into different areas or "zones." Zoning regulates what land can be used for in that zone, and it also regulates development standards for new development building. Development standards refer the following in a given zone:
- lot coverage
- parking standards
- tree shading or landscaping requirements
- setback requirements
The purpose of establishing zoning designations within a community is to ensure that neighboring land uses are compatible with one another. Residential uses, for example, are generally not compatible with industrial uses. If a property owner or developer wishes to develop property with a use that is inconsistent with the site's existing zoning designation, there are procedures in place that could allow the designation to be changed.
The procedures include noticed public hearings before both the Planning Commission and the City Council. In addition, the project's potential environmental impacts must be addressed during the processing of the application. Specific questions regarding rezoning applications should be directed to staff in the Planning Division.
The Zoning Map shows the Zoning Districts as designated in the Development Code. For more specific Zoning District information, please refer to the Development Code below under External Links or contact the Planning Division.
