The development standards found within Riverside County Ordinance No. 348: try to ensure that private development takes place within a given area in which: (1) All uses are compatible, (2) Common development standards are used, and (3) Each development does not unreasonably place a burden upon its neighbors. How do I find out what my property is zoned? To determine what the zoning designation is for a piece of property, obtain the 9-digit Assessor’s Parcel Number (APN). It is important to determine whether your proposed business use is allowable on a particular parcel before you commit to any long-term lease or property purchase. With the parcel number there are a variety of options for you to obtain your zoning. These include: (1) Use Map My County: my-county (works best with Microsoft Edge), on the Navigation Menu select “Search” (2) Call or visit any of the TLMA Permit Assistance Centers in Riverside or Palm Desert:
