ZONING

The Zoning Code is a section of the Municipal Code regulating any type of physical development or land use within the City. Paso Robles’ Zoning Code information is available online.

A zoning district describes the general use, density, and type of development allowed in that area. All buildings, land use, or any type of physical development must comply with the regulations for each zoning district. Each property is located within a base zoning district. Several properties are also located within overlay zoning districts, which either provide for additional permitted uses or impose additional development regulations. The tables below list the various base and overlay zoning districts.

The Uptown/Town Centre Specific Plan contains its own zoning regulations for properties within the specific plan area.  The Zoning Map linked below shows zoning districts for all properties in the City, including properties in the Uptown/Town Centre Specific Plan Area.  However, the specific plan has its own zoning matrix.
