How do I determine what uses are allowed on my property?

The City’s Zoning Code Section 9.72.090(a) includes the “Land Use Matrix,” which is a table that includes a list of non-residential uses and specifies whether each listed use is permitted, prohibited, or requires a Site Development Permit or Use Permit in the corresponding zone.
