The Department of Development Services is responsible for updating the City’s Land Use Map and Zoning Map. The Land Use Map shows what types of land uses are allowed within an area.

Old Town Revitalization Plan Development Standards

Transit Oriented Development Packing House District
The following provides detailed regulations for development of land uses within the Transit Oriented Development Packing House District (TOD Packing House District or "District"). The purpose of the TOD Packing House District is to encourage an appropriate mixture and density of activity around the Metrolink station to increase ridership and promote alternative modes of transportation to the automobile. The consequent intent is to decrease auto-dependency, and mitigate the effects of congestion and pollution. The development standards seek to achieve this by providing a pedestrian, bicycle, and transit-supportive environment configured in a compact pattern and a complementary mix of land uses all within a comfortable walking distance of the station.
