GIS & Mapping

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) centrally manages, shares and analyzes information about locations though specialized mapping technology. This information increases transparency, improves City technology applications and provides critical data to decision makers and the public. GIS continues to help the City better understand the populations we serve, improve our land, maintain our infrastructure, more effectively share and analyze information to make decisions and more clearly communicate with each other  and the public.

Like every major city in the United States, Fresno has a Development Code, which is also known as a Zoning Ordinance. This document is the DNA of the city. It details all of the standards to keep Fresno developing in a smart and organized manner. A new Development Code was adopted on December 3, 2015. In order to streamline the development process for property owners and ensure that the right rules get applied to the right areas a new Zoning Map was adopted on February 4, 2016 and is effective as of  March 7, 2016.
