Zoning Administration reviews certain types of projects for compliance with applicable zoning codes. In some cases, if a property cannot be developed in conformance with standards, there are processes available to modify the standards.
Special Districts allow the City to achieve specific planning and development goals for particular areas. These goals can include promoting transit-oriented development, preserving neighborhood character, encouraging infill development, and more.
The Entitlements section reviews and processes applications for land use changes that require discretionary approval, typically either from the Mayor and Council or the Zoning Examiner.
