If you are looking for a site to locate your business in Roseville, one of the first things you'll want to check are the zoning requirements. The property where you want to locate your business must have a zoning designation that allows for the type of business you have. It is highly recommended that you speak with the Planning Department before purchasing or leasing property to ensure that your business will be an allowable use.
If you are considering a particular site, you can find out what the zoning designation is by speaking with a planner in the Planning Department . You can also view a zoning map on-line. Once you know the zoning designation you can find a list of allowable uses for that zone in Section 19.10.020 of the zoning ordinance, also available on-line. The zoning ordinance includes a list of different types of business and commercial uses and indicates if the use is Permitted (designated with a "P"), requires a Conditional Use Permit ("CUP"), Administratively Permitted ("A") or is not permitted ("-").
Finding a Place for Your Business
The City does not keep a list of properties available for sale or lease, however, the Planning Department does track the status of projects once an application is submitted to the City. The Quarterly Development Activity Report includes data and maps for every specific plan area of the City and tracks projects from application submittal until issuance of an occupancy permit. The report also includes historical data about the number of building permits and occupancy permits issued broken down by specific plan area and land use.
