Numbering system

The Zoning Code contains 40 chapters spread over seven articles. Article I relates to zone based regulations; Article II relates to citywide regulations; Article III is design standards; Article IV is environmental regulations; Article V is land divisions; Article VI is review procedures; Article VII is definitions. There are also eleven appendices. Tables following the appendices provide a list of relevant statutory references; a state code citation table indicating sections where state codes are cited; and an enactment table listing ordinances codified in the RZC.

Numbering scheme

The numbering scheme used in the Redmond Zoning Code operates in the following manner:


The legislative source of each section is enclosed in parentheses at the end of the section. References to ordinances are abbreviated; thus (Ord. 2652; Ord. 2709; Ord. 2733; Ord. 2753; Ord. 2803). “Formerly” followed by a RZC citation preserves the record of original codification. A semicolon between ordinance citations indicates an amendment of the earlier section.

Codification tables

To convert an ordinance citation to its RZC number consult the enactment table following the appendices.
