All public and private property in Laguna Woods is located in one of several zoning districts that govern growth and development in a manner consistent with the Laguna Woods General Plan. For certain property, an additional overlay zoning district may also apply to provide specialized, supplemental standards.

Zoning is established to comply with state law that requires all cities (and counties in areas where there is no city) to designate “the proposed general distribution and general location and extent of the uses of the land,” including both “public and private uses of land” (California Government Code Section 65302(a)).

Site-specific zoning is delineated on the City’s Zoning Map.

The Laguna Woods Municipal Code contains tables of permitted uses for each zoning district. To discuss a use not listed, please contact the Planning Division at planning@cityoflagunawoods.org.
