Zoning Code and Map Update

Zoning Code Update Release Constant Contact Format

The City of Moorpark is pleased to release the first comprehensive Zoning Code Update in the City's history.  As part of the City's General Plan Update, the Zoning Code Update is an integral part of the implementation of the land use goals and policies which the General Plan envisions.  The Zoning Code is the primary implementation tool the City uses to provide the framework for future development and redevelopment of the built environment. The Zoning Code includes permit processes, and development standards like height and setbacks, and outlines various regulations related to the built environment.  The Zoning Code Update also includes minor updates to other chapters of the Moorpark Municipal Code. 

Public Review and Comments
