Height Limitations

Background

The Envision San Jose 2040 General Plan removed specific height limitations and exceptions from the General Plan and re-established these regulations in the City's Zoning Ordinance (Title 20 of the San Jose Municipal Code).

In February 2012, an ordinance became effective that added a new Zoning Code chapter to incorporate height regulations for specific geographic areas and specific types of development. Then, in November 2012 and August 2013, after coordination with the County of Santa Clara's Airport Land Use Commission (ALUC), two other ordinances were approved that addressed geographic areas within the Norman Y. Mineta San Jose International Airport Influence Area (AIA).
