Questions have come up in the community about what uses are allowed in the City of Coronado’s R-1A residential zoning code. What are those uses?

Here are the allowed uses that apply to all R-1A properties in the City:

  • One single-family dwelling
  • One duplex or two single-family dwelling buildings in the R-1A(E) zone on a minimum lot of 10,500 square feet
  • Incidental home occupations (See Chapter 20.08 of the CMC)
  • Accessory Buildings (See Chapter 86.56 of the CMC)
  • Off-street parking (See Chapter 86.58 of the CMC)
  • Residential care facility, supportive housing, and transitional housing, as defined in Chapter 86 of the CMC

The City adopted a resolution in February 2013, amending the Coronado General Plan by adopting the 2013-2021 Housing Element, which is required by the State to effectuate State housing policy. The City was required to amend its Municipal Code within one year of amending the General Plan to address the amendments to the 2013-2021 Housing Element. In early 2014, the Planning Commission recommended approval of and the City Council then formally approved the Municipal Code amendment related to the Housing Element. If the Housing Element is not certified by the State and adopted by the City, Coronado is not eligible to receive some state and regional funding. Additionally, even if Coronado were to not amend its Housing Element, it could not prevent the subject uses in its residential zoning districts. As required by State law, language was added to clarify that supportive housing and transitional housing are a form of housing and shall be permitted in zones where housing is permitted, subject to the same development standards as the same type of housing in that zone.
