CDD Locator Map

This map of the City includes multiple data layers, and is intended to allow users to select a location and obtain information about a variety of features located nearby.  While the information layers on this map can be found on separate maps on the CDD web site, the Locator Map lets you see and identify what lies near your location all at once.  

The larger polygons on the map make up the Commercial Districts of the City as designated by the Economic Development Division. Other polygons indicate a variety of current and recently completed projects undertaken by all divisions of the Community Development Department.  Parks that are highlighted with a green border can be clicked to get more information   LEED-certified buildings and current Special Permit projects are represented by the two sets of points.
