More information. The County proposes to plan and regulate land uses using a two-map system for the unincorporated land in San Bernardino County. In the Draft Policy Plan, a set of broad Land Use Categories will provide long-term guidance and direction for the overall distribution, intensity, and compatibility of development in the unincorporated county areas.
The Policy Plan will provide the basis for and be implemented by the County’s Development Code, which includes a set of Land Use Zoning Districts that establishes detailed land use districts, intensities, requirements, and standards. The Land Use Zoning Districts must be consistent with the Land Use Categories.
While unincorporated areas administered and/or controlled by federal, tribal, and state governments are generally outside of the County’s land use authority, the two-map system will be applied to these areas to convey the long-term land use plans of said entities and provide complete coverage of the unincorporated lands. The Land Use Categories and Zoning Districts would also directly govern land use if the federal, tribal, or state governments relinquished control over any of these lands in the future.
