Individual zoning classifications affect all residential structures such as dwellings, home additions, fences, swimming pools, and garages, as well as all commercial and other structures like offices, barns and lumber mills.
Zoning regulations also control what is allowed in specific areas of the City. For example, a property owner typically can conduct a business in a commercial area but not in a residential area except under limited conditions. Similarly, industrial uses are allowed in industrial areas and limited in agricultural areas.
Zoning regulations also contain combining zones and other standards may also apply to a property. The purpose of the Zoning Regulations is to implement the City's general plan in part by regulating development in accordance with this plan. At the same time, they also help to minimize conflicts resulting from incompatible uses.
