Each piece of property within the City of Pinole is part of a designated Zoning District. Each district contains different regulations, potential uses, and development standards. This includes minimum distances or setbacks from the property lines for buildings, accessory structures, as well as building height. Additionally, permitted business uses and operations are contained in Title 17 of the Pinole Municipal Code, "Zoning."

Specific Plan Zoning Maps
The Specific Plan customizes many of the standards and regulations found in the City of Pinole Zoning Ordinance to help achieve the vision for the three Specific Plan Areas: San Pablo Avenue, Pinole Valley Road, and Appian Way. The complete Specific Plan may be viewed here.
Property owners in the Specific Plan Areas should consult the Specific Plan Zoning Maps in addition the the Zoning Map when determining potential uses and development standards for their property. In any instance where the Specific Plan conflicts with the requirements of the City of Pinole's Zoning Ordinance, the Specific Plan provisions will take precedence (e.g., allowed uses, setbacks,). Where the Specific Plan is silent on a topic, the Pinole Municipal Code requirements remain in force (e.g., allowable sign area).
