Explore zoning use charts

There are four separate charts available for download, based on the type of zoning:

  1. Commercial
  2. Downtown Commercial
  3. Industrial, Open Space & Public Facilities
  4. Residential

Each chart lists the Zoning Districts along the top, and a list of uses along the left side. If you want to check where a particular use would be allowed, follow its row across, and you will notice that a letter appears in some of the boxes: P, S, A or C. This letter indicates that the use is permitted in the particular zone district and whether any special Planning permit is required. If there is no letter in the box, that use is not permitted in the zone district.

  • “P” indicates that the use is “Primary” and does not need a special Planning permit.
  • “S” indicates that the use is “Secondary” and also does not need a special permit, but that there first must be a related “Primary” use on the property.
  • “A” indicates that an “Administrative Use Permit” is required and must be approved by the Planning Director before the use can be conducted.
  • “C” indicates that a “Conditional Use Permit” is required and must be approved by the Planning Commission before the use can be established.

If a Planning permit is indicated, a formal application, with fees, is required.
