PLANNING

ZONING

Zoning is a tool used by the City to regulate the uses and development of land and is intended to protect property values, avoid conflicts between uses, guide new growth, and influence the design of new or expanded buildings. An interactive Zoning Map of the City is available.


PERMITS & INFORMATION

The Planning division has a number of handouts available to help answer your questions. Planning permits may be required for certain development projects and uses before a Building permit can be issued. Planners are available at the Permit Center to help identify the approvals that may be required for your project.

 

PUBLIC HEARINGS

The Planning Commission hears and recommends to the City Council on matters relating to the City’s General Plan, the development of the City and recommends zoning matters. The  Board of Zoning Adjustments (BZA) hears and decides upon applications for zoning matters, such as Conditional Use Permits, Site Plan Review, Sign Programs, and appeals of certain administrative decisions. 


PLANS & CEQA DOCUMENTS

For documents available for public review, as well as adopted plans such as San Leandro's Downtown Transit-Oriented Development Strategy, Climate Action Plan and 2035 General Plan.
