Since its incorporation in 1960, the unprecedented growth of San Dimas has transformed the City from an essentially rural area to a well-balanced community offering industrial, commercial, and residential living. In addition to the 1,700 acre Frank G. Bonelli Recreational Area which lies within the City boundaries, there are many parks such as San Dimas Canyon Park, a city-owned golf course (San Dimas Canyon Golf Club), and over 27 miles of equestrian trails for riding. The city services include an extensive recreational program for youth and for senior citizens, and the City boasts a new modern City Hall, with excellent provisions made for County Sheriff and Fire Departments, along with a fine Los Angeles County Library and Engineering Regional Office.
In order to implement the General Plan, the Planning Commission is empowered to administer the City’s zoning laws, ordinances, rules and regulations which:
- Regulate the use and appearance of buildings, structures, and land.
- Regulate signs and billboards.
- Regulate location, height, bulk, number of stores and size of buildings and structures; the size and use of lots, yards, courts and other open spaces; the percentage of a lot which may be occupied by a building or structure; the intensity of land use.
- Establish requirements for off-street parking and loading.
- Establish and maintain building setback lines.
