The City of Stockton's Zoning Map divides all the land within the City into different areas or zones. Zoning regulates what land can be used for in that area and regulates standards for new development buildings. Development standards refer to:
- lot coverage,
- parking standards,
- tree shading or landscaping requirements, and
- setback requirements.
The purpose of establishing zoning designations within a community ensures neighboring land uses are compatible with one another.
For example, residential uses, are generally not compatible with industrial uses. If a property owner or developer wishes to develop property inconsistent with the site's existing zoning, procedures are in place that could allow the designation to be changed.Rezoning
This request requires a completed Planning Application with the property owner's signature, application fee, and necessary exhibits to illustrate the requested change in zoning.
The procedures include noticed public hearings before both the Planning Commission and the City Council. The project's potential environmental impacts must also be addressed during the application processing. Specific questions regarding rezoning applications should be directed to staff in the Planning Division.
