Zoning Ordinance Assessment Tool
Welcome to the Zoning Ordinance Assessment Tool. This easy-to-use questionnaire will help you determine which aspects of your jurisdiction's zoning ordinance may benefit from an update, and provides resources and model ordinances for guidance. Simply answer each question asked, and if your response indicates an update may be needed you will be given examples and resources on the next screen. If an update is not needed for that topic, you will continue to the next topic. At the end of the survey, you will be provided with a report via email of your answers for your records. No need to copy the responses in the survey; they will all be included in the email you receive from Google forms upon completion of your assessment.
The purpose of this tool is to provide a simple and streamlined way for jurisdictions to assess which parts of their zoning ordinance may need to be updated to meet performance standards, State regulations, and best practices. This tool is intended to provide a high-level assessment and resources, and is not a substitute for professional or legal advice.
In addition to this assessment, a Model Zoning Ordinance is being developed tailored for small cities in the San Joaquin Valley under this program. You can access the Model Zoning Ordinance by reaching out to FCOG Circuit Planning Project Manager, Eric VonBerg (
559-704-5569). If you have questions on your results and/or possible next steps, feel free to reach out as well to Eric VonBerg.
