A nonconforming building or use is one which was established prior to the zoning regulations, and does not meet current development standards or the uses allowed by the zone classification. Nonconforming buildings or uses are commonly known as being "grandfathered in".
To be recognized as legal and non-conforming, the structure or use must be used continuously for the same purpose without interruption for more than two years.
Special requirements apply to nonconforming structures and uses. For more information please contact Planning and Development Services at 559- 846-936 or visit our office at:
