Zoning & Land Use


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

Zoning Code

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
  • 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.
