Development Services



Zone In: City Core, previously known as the Anaheim Corridor Zoning Implementation Plan (ACZIP), is part of a larger rezoning effort known as Zone In and is a joint effort between the City of Long Beach and the Long Beach community to update zoning regulations in the area bounded by Pacific Coast Highway, 10th Street, Magnolia and Ximeno Avenues. View the Zone In: City Core Project Area Map.

The Zone In: City Core project will update zoning regulations to support the development of new housing and a greater mix of uses particularly along commercial corridors in the area, including Anaheim Street and Pacific Coast Highway. The plan will create a more complete community where residents, businesses, jobs and shopping are located near each other with a more pedestrian-friendly design.

These zoning changes are anticipated to facilitate more than 3,000 market-rate and affordable housing units in the area. Zone In: City Core aims to accommodate housing need, improve access to commercial uses used daily, encourage pedestrian-friendly design, improve the quality and safety of streets through design and active uses and encourage the use of multimodal transportation.

The plan's equity-based framework is focused on both changes to zoning and land use regulations, as well as changes to the planning process itself. It will be grounded in a community power and capacity-building process in which the people most impacted by planning decisions, including young people, renters and people of color, and prioritized in the process and have their voices heard.
