Chandler Zoning Code
This link will take you to Municode.com to view Chandler's Zoning Code, which is Chapter 35 of the City of Chandler Municipal Code.

Zoning District Summary
The Zoning District summary is provided as a quick reference for typical site development requirements (building height, lot coverage, setbacks, etc.) for what are commonly referred to as hard zoning districts (C-1, C-2, SF-8.5, MF-1, etc.).  Please note that many properties are zoned PAD (Planned Area Development) or have a PAD overlay on top of the hard zoning district.  The PAD zoning is essentially a customized zoning district that is applied to any type of use (residential, commercial, industrial) and could entail variations from the site development requirements provided in the summary provided above.  Therefore, it is highly advised that you contact a City Planner at 480-782-3000 in order to confirm the zoning district and associated site development requirements for any specific property.
