Special Planning Areas, Neighborhood Preservation Areas & Specific Plans

Skip to List of Adopted SPAs, NPAs, and Specific Plans.

The Sacramento County Zoning Code may be amended to create a “mini-Zoning Code” for a defined area through three basic processes: 

  • Special Planning Areas (SPA).  An SPA is created for an established area when the countywide zoning regulations (“Titles” I, II & III) do not adequately address local concerns.  The SPA allows uses, regulations and standards that would not be allowed under the countywide regulations. SPAs are in Title V of the Zoning Code.
  • Neighborhood Preservation Area (NPA).  An NPA is designed to protect and preserve the character of established neighborhoods when the countywide regulations are inadequate for that purpose.  NPAs are in Title VI of the Zoning Code.
  • Specific Plans.  Specific Plans are for master planned new growth areas which may require their own policies, regulations and standards for planning sustainable developments.  Specific Plan are in Title VI of the Zoning Code.
