Downtown Zoning Guide
Welcome to the City of Santa Rosa’s Downtown Zoning Guide. If you are beginning your research into opening a business downtown, it is important to know if there are any zoning requirements or restrictions that apply to your particular type of business or location. There is a vast resource of current information available on the City’s website and this guide is designed to help you make better use of these tools.
Please note that you will need to check with the Community Development Department for final determinations on zoning. Also keep in mind that, depending on your type of business, there may be other necessary permits or requirements that are not listed here.

Code Alert When consulting the Zoning Code, be aware of any Code Alerts listed at the top of the page. The Alerts will provide links to PDFs of ordinances that are in effect but have yet to be integrated into the Code.
