Zoning Code

The Zoning Code is one of the primary tools for implementing Pasadena’s General Plan providing direction to those who are looking to develop their property, open a business, or redevelop or expand a home or business. The Specific Plans will provide more detailed direction about how development should occur in those areas defined by the General Plan where most of the change in Pasadena is expected to occur. As part of this program, the Planning & Community Development will undertake a focused update that concentrates on the Specific Plan areas and will implement the Specific Plan by detailing rules and requirements that regulate the size, shape, use, and placement of buildings, and much more, within each of the Specific Plan areas.

The current zoning code is available online.
