What happens after the zone change is approved?

If the Board of Supervisors approves the zone change, it normally becomes effective in thirty (30) calendar days. Sometimes the Board of Supervisors will approve a zone change where that approval is “held in suspense” pending certain other actions that may be required. For example, a zone change application for R-1 zoning may be “held in suspense” until a subdivision map is recorded for the affected property. In this instance, the approval for the zone change does not become operative until after the subdivision map has been approved by the Board of Supervisors and recorded.
