Current Planning & Zoning - Community Development
Current Planning & Zoning
The City of Burbank has land use and development policies, guidelines, and regulatory documents that guide the physical, environmental, and economic development of the community. The City Council adopts these documents after involvement of the community and appointed and elected officials.
Specific and Master Plans
The Zoning Code is Chapter 10 of the Burbank Municipal Code and consists of land use regulations enacted in order to promote the public health, safety, peace, comfort, convenience, prosperity, and welfare of the City and its inhabitants.
Specific Plans are policy documents that provide land use policies and development standards for certain areas of the City. Specific plans may be used to protect and preserve the character of a certain area, to promote economic development and redevelopment, coordinate infrastructure or improvements, or some combination thereof.
Master Plan and Other Zoning Overlays
Master Plans are special zoning standards adopted to preserve and enhance key neighborhoods within the City, typically focused on land uses and development/design standards only.
