Similar to zoning designations described above, all properties within the City are also assigned a land use designation. For example, many properties are assigned an RI or Residential-Low Density designation. Land use designations are derived from the land use goals, policies, and standards of the City’s general plan. Residential land use designations also establish a residential density expressed in terms of residential units per acre. Land use designations are more general than zoning classifications. Typically, land use designations focus on allowed uses whereas zoning classifications provide specific standards related to building height and setbacks. Both are used by decision-makers to determine whether a proposed use, development, or subdivision is appropriate.
