Building in the City of Huntington Park :

The Zoning Code’s directives assure a fair balance of land uses and orderly development, promoting public health, safety, and general welfare and preserving and enhancing the City’s aesthetic qualities. To attain this goal, the City wants to develop a distribution and pattern of land uses that generally:

  • Maintain and improve established residential neighborhoods, commercial and industrial districts, uses that serve the region, recreational opportunities, and amenities; uphold a balanced distribution of land uses; and ensure that all areas of the City have compatible land uses.
  • Permit places to be infilled and recycled at their established/prevalent scale, density, and character.
  • Permit the proper intensification of usage in the City’s central urban area.
  • Protect and improve critical environmental resources.
  • Protect the general public from natural safety threats while providing open space resources for passive and active leisure activities.
  • To maintain community identity and quality development in the City and its neighborhoods while providing a diversity of areas with varying land use activity, scale, and intensity.
  • Keep Huntington Park a unique and safe space for the people and businesses of the City.

The R-L (Low-Density Residential) Zone is designed to accommodate detached single-family homes with low-density private yards. Additionally allowed are manufactured dwellings with fixed foundations. Daycare centers, schools, churches, and other additional land uses may be permitted if they are harmonious with and serve the requirements of a low-density residential community.

The DTSP (Downtown Huntington Park Specific Plan) aims to develop a distinct and recognizable downtown for Huntington Park that is a thriving tourist attraction for pedestrians. The DTSP organizes zoning and land use restrictions into districts concentrating on the Downtown area. The goal is to produce a governing document that encourages greater facilities, improved architecture and aesthetics, more suitable and complementary uses, rules for displaying goods, and an enhanced overall identity for Downtown Huntington Park.

The MPD zoning district’s goals include the following while providing for service commercial, business, and industrial uses:

  • In accordance with the General Plan, establish a significant economic foundation with job clusters often supplied by highways and arterial corridors.
  • Ensure there is enough room to accommodate industrial development’s demands, including off-street parking and loading.
  • Reduce traffic snarl-ups and prevent utility overload.
  • Keep nearby locations free from intrusive effects such as excessive lighting, noise, stench, smoking, and ugliness.
  • Encourage the use of high-quality site planning, architecture, and landscape design for industrial projects inside the City in accordance with the General Plan’s design requirements.

The OS (Open Space) Zone’s main objective is to provide for the public and private land use activities required to satisfy city inhabitants’ active and passive recreational demands.
