Zoning Code Parking Regulations

The Zoning Code Parking Update

In an effort to improve the ease of doing business in the City and promote sustainable communities, the Sacramento City Council approved changes to its parking zoning requirements on October 30, 2012. New zoning rules will take effect on December 30th 2012. 

These ordinance changes, coupled with some of the parking management strategies being considered by the City’s Parking Division, will encourage economic development, help the City maximize the use of existing parking opportunities citywide, reduce impacts to neighborhoods, and promote alternative modes of transportation and sustainable building.

Reference Documents:

Vehicle and bicycle parking requirements are organized into four parking districts based on general plan urban form types (Central Business District, Urban, Traditional, and Suburban).  The maps of these districts can be found below:
