Area / Community / Coastal / Neighborhood Plans


This data depicts generalized land use classifications, each of which is intended to describe the dominant use characteristics within the area covered. Updated information regarding public parks, school sites, freeways, rail/transit lines, and other ownership-specific boundaries have been incorporated into this data. The actual use and intensity of development that may be allowed on private property within any given land classification is determined by a review of policy maps, other mapped and written policies of the General Plan, and the underlying zoning classification.  UPDATED on 11/26/18 for a Plan Amendment adopted by the Board of Supervisors on 10/30/18 (click here for resolution).
