Interactive Property Map


Our interactive property map allows you to search for a property by "address" (for example: "505 South Garey") or by  Los Angeles County Assessor's Parcel No. (also known as an "APN" or "AIN"). Once found, you can click on the property to learn more about zoning, land use, and any other applicable regulations. To move beyond the map and into the actual regulations for your property, see Pomona Zoning Ordinance and Specific Plan Regulations. To learn more about the policies guiding your property into the future, see Pomona General Plan and Policy Documents.

The regulations for each property (or "parcel") in Pomona are known as "zoning." Zoning regulations are found in two places: the Pomona Zoning Ordinance, or in "Specific Plans" for certain areas of the City. Links to all regulations can be found below.

Pomona Subdivision Ordinance 


There are special regulations that guide how a property or parcel can be "subdivided" into smaller portions, either to create new parcels or to establish condominium units for sale (also known as dividing "airspace"). These regulations are found in Chapter 29 of our Pomona City Code, linked below.

Pomona General Plan and Policy Documents 


The City's guiding policy for growth is the 2014 General Plan. This document contains chapters that address population growth, economic development, historic preservation, communtiy design, noise, safety, utilities, conservation, land use, and more. There is also a special chapter on housing that is updated more frequently to comply with State law (known as the "Housing Element"). In addition to the General Plan, the City has other companion documents, such as an Active Transportation Plan and Green Plan. Links to all policy documents are below.

Each Agenda will include a special hyperlink and instructions on how to access and participate in the meeting. We are using a "Webinar" format, which allows individuals to participate by using the "Raise Hand" or "Q/A" feature.

Recent Director-Level Decisions 


The Development Services has the authority to make Director-Level decisions for matters that come up within the Downtown Pomona Specific Plan. The process used to make this decision is called "Substantial Conformance," and requires "findings of fact" to be made, and is subject to a 15 calendar day appeal period. You can learn more about this process by reviewing Chapter 1.7 of the Downtown Pomona Specifc Plan (page 14). Any such recent decisions will be posted below. We encourage you to click the link to review the decision and contact the Planner listed for any questions, or to request an appeal. 


(If you're looking for decisions regarding Historic Preservation, please see the dedicated Historic Preservation Page).
