Zoning and Land Use

The purpose of zoning is to preserve, protect and enhance our City's neighborhoods and commercial zones.

The Planning Division administers the City’s Zoning Code (Hanford Municipal Code, Title 17). This includes providing information on zoning regulations, reviewing documents and plans for compliance, and assisting applicants with requests for land use reviews.  The Zoning Ordinance specifies the uses allowed for the property, limitations on uses and specific development and design requirements.
