How many dwelling units can I build on my property?

Properties in the R-A, RLD, R-E, R-S and R-U zones are limited to one dwelling unit per lot; however, Article IX of Chapter 18.20 of the Zoning Code allows for the establishment of one accessory dwelling unit on properties intended for single-family dwelling units under certain conditions. Please contact the Planning Division at (714) 961-7130 to speak with a planner if you have questions about accessory dwelling units. In multi-family zoning districts, the R-M zone allows for 10 dwelling units per acre, the R-M-20 zone allows for 20 dwelling units per acre, and the R-M-30 zone allows for 30 dwelling units per acre.
