To verify the zoning designation of any property within the City of Anaheim, we recommend utilizing our online mapping application which provides you the property’s zoning designation.

You may also request a “Zoning Verification Letter” by visiting Anaheim.net/Next. A Zoning Verification Letter is a formal letter from the Planning Services Division that states the zoning of a property, previous zoning entitlements, and applicable rebuild clauses.

Please be advised that, items such as: Requests regarding open Fire Code, Building Code and Zoning Code Violations, as well as copies of the Certificates of Occupancy are handled separately as a public records requests (and not a zoning letter) and most of that information is available via the City’s online public portal

To submit a records request, such a copies of previous entitlements, you may submit a public records request form by clicking here and emailing it to PRecords@anaheim.net.
