R Street Special Planning District (Zoning)

Land use development standards for the R Street Corridor are regulated by a special district within the City of Sacramento Zoning Code.  The R Street Special Planning District (SPD) regulates standards such as specific land uses, height, setbacks, density, and parking.

R STREET CORRIDOR ZONING CODE UPDATE

The City adopted a comprehensive update of the zoning code on April 9. 2013.  As part of this update, City Council approved changes to a few sections of the R Street Corridor Special Planning District (SPD).

  • light stations from 60 dwelling units per net acre to 100 dwelling units per net acre

  • Refer to base zones for land use regulations
  • Use revised citywide standards for open space, stepbacks, and parking
