Official Land Use Plan

  •  Interactive Land Use Plan (Interpretive)
  •  Official Land Use Plan - PDF (Exhibit LU-01)

How we develop, use and arrange our land is critical to achieving the Ontario Vision.  Land is a finite and valuable resource.  How we use it becomes a key factor in the City's economic future.  As stewards of the land, the City must plan for uses and development that adds value to the community, in terms of function, design and fiscal return.  We are steadfast in our Vision, but the Policy Plan is flexible enough to accommodate the evolution of development types.

We desire Ontario to have distinct neighborhoods and activity centers; diversity of residential, employment, retail, entertainment, and community and recreational services; and a world-class airport which are connected through a unified mobility system. The Land Use Element reflects Ontario's Vision to be a complete community.


The Land Use Element:

  • Designates the distribution, location and balance of land uses.
  • Describes the desired build-out of Ontario.
  • Describes building intensity standards for each land use. 
  • Communicates population density.
  • Ensures compatibility between land uses.


We believe:
  • Development that supports the Vision will strengthen the City's economy.
  • New growth will enhance the quality of life in the entire community, including our existing neighborhoods.
  • Land uses and development should be consistent with the Vision while protecting the quality of life in existing neighborhoods.
  • Our development review process should incorporate flexible standards to achieve our Vision.
  • The way land is used and developed will determine our revenue base and expenditures.

ALUCP for Ontario International Airport




ALUCP for Ontario International Airport 

Airport Planning Logo

The Ontario City Council adopted an Airport Land Use Compatibility Plan (ALUCP) for Ontario International Airport (ONT) on April 19, 2011.  The ALUCP was developed collaboratively with neighboring jurisdictions, Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Caltrans Division of Aeronautics and Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA).  
The ALUCP is consistent with State Law and includes land use measures that will guide future development to minimize the public's exposure to existing and future noise and safety-related hazards.
The City is currently working towards implementing the ALUCP by updating necessary land use plans to be consistent with ALUCP.  The City will also continue to work collaboratively with neighboring jurisdictions on implementing the ALUCP to meet State Law requirements.
Any questions regarding the ALUCP can be forwarded to Lorena Mejia at lmejia@ci.ontario.ca.us or (909) 395-2276.  The ALUCP can be accessed by clicking here.
