CDD Locator Map Legend

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. You can turn map layers on and off by clicking on the legend icon in the upper right corner and selecting or deselecting layers.

The larger polygons on the map make up the Commercial Districts of the City as designated by the Economic Development Division. Parks that are highlighted with a green border can be clicked to get more information. Certified sustainable buildings, and current and historical Special Permit projects are represented by the two sets of points. 

The various data layers on the map are updated on a rolling basis:

  • Commercial Districts: September 2016
  • Sustainable Buildings: July 2022
  • Parks: June 2022
  • Special Permits: July 2023
  • Waterplay Features: June 2023
