The City of Corona has established landscape design guidelines for residential, commercial and industrial developments in order to create pleasant and attractive properties throughout the City. The City believes that proper landscaping promotes a sense of community, creates a more pleasant living and working environment, and promotes water and resource conservation, including but not limited to, storm water retention/percolation and best management practices.
The landscape guidelines complement the mandatory site development regulations contained in the City?s Zoning Ordinance and Specific Plans.
The landscape design guidelines will be utilized during the City's plan review process to accomplish the goals of:
- ensuring the highest level of resource conservation including water conservation, ground water recharge, and green waste reduction;
- promoting water-efficient landscaping, water use management and water conservation through the use of water-efficient landscaping, functional and limited use of turf grass, and aggressive use of water conserving irrigation technology and management;
- reducing the water demands from landscapes without a decline in the landscape quality or quantity;
- retaining flexibility and encouraging creativity through appropriate design;
- compliance with state guidelines by requiring that landscapes not exceed a maximum water demand of seventy percent (70%) of its reference evapotranspiration (ETo) or any lower percentage as may be required by state legislation; and
- eliminating water waste from overspray and/or runoff.
