Pinole's Zoning


Zoning Map and Zoning Code

Each piece of property within the City of Pinole is part of a designated Zoning District, shown in the City's Zoning Map. Each Zoning District has regulations and development standards, such as minimum setback distances for structures, maximum building heights, and permitted uses, that are contained in the Zoning Code.

Specific Plan Zoning Maps

The Specific Plan customizes many of the standards and regulations found in the City of Pinole Zoning Ordinance to help achieve the vision for the three Specific Plan Areas: San Pablo Avenue, Pinole Valley Road, and Appian Way. The complete Specific Plan may be viewed here.

Property owners in the Specific Plan Areas should consult the Specific Plan Zoning Maps in addition to the Zoning Map when determining potential uses and development standards for their property. In any instance where the Specific Plan conflicts with the requirements of the City of Pinole's Zoning Ordinance, the Specific Plan provisions will take precedence (e.g., allowed uses, setbacks,). Where the Specific Plan is silent on a topic, the Pinole Municipal Code requirements remain in force (e.g., allowable sign area).
