The City’s Zoning Code is comprised of both Title 21 and Title 22. Title 22, the Transitional Zoning Code, was adopted by the Long Beach City Council in 2020. Title 22 is being established in order to facilitate a substantial update to the City's Zoning Regulations to make the Zoning Regulations consistent with the City’s 2019 General Plan Update, as required by state law. The intention is to eventually fully transition from Title 21 to Title 22. During the transition period, all regulations contained within Title 22 apply to zones established in Title 22. In the case of a regulation not specified in Title 22, the regulations contained in Title 21, including those set forth in Section 21.10.080, "Penalty for violation," shall apply. If uncertainty arises concerning the content or application of Title 22, the Zoning Administrator is authorized to determine all pertinent facts, interpret the Title 22 regulations, and, where appropriate, determine which provisions of either Title 21 or Title 22 are applicable. The Classification of Use procedure, which is set forth in Chapter 21.25 of Title 21, shall be used to resolve discrepancies.
