All maps were created by the Planning Division. These maps depict commonly requested information about development and growth for the City of Bakersfield. The maps are in Adobe Acrobat (PDF) format. It is recommended you have a broadband internet connection to view these files (DSL, cable, T1, etc.). The maps can be downloaded from this site free of charge. Paper copies are available for sale at the Planning counter, located at the above address. In order to expedite the download process as quickly as possible it is recommended that you right click on the link and choose the “Save Target As” option. All maps are in large plot format that can be plotted out on an appropriate large format plotter. The maps are “E” sized plots (34 x 44 inches) with the exception of the zoning map (34 x 53 inches). In addition there is a link to our interactive web application, which will allow you to look at a variety of development information.
