In addition to building, plumbing, mechanical and electrical codes, the City of Buena Park has adopted zoning regulations. These standards generally regulate areas of "compatibility" and aesthetics such as minimum building setbacks, maximum building height and maximum number of dwelling units per lot.

The City is divided into zoning "districts," each of which has a specific set of development standards. The residential districts begin with the "R" prefix such as the "RS-6" (one-family residential, "RM-10" (multi-family residential) or "RM" (multi-family residential) districts.

If you have detailed questions, or wish to determine which zoning district your property is in, Zoning information can be obtained at either the Community Development Department Counter, or by telephone by calling (714) 562-3620 between the hours of 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday through Thursday and alternating Fridays.
