Where can I find my Assessor's Parcel Number (APN)?
Parcel numbers are found on your property tax bill or you can contact the
Monterey County Assessor at (831) 755-5035 or
What does the zoning designation mean?
Regulations for zoning designations can be found in the County Zoning
Ordinances. If the zoning designation ends with a (CZ) the
parcel is in the Coastal Zone and you should use the
Ordinance (Title 20). If the designation does not end in (CZ)
the parcel is in the inland area and
Title 21 should be used.
Why is there no location shown for the parcel?
The APN is the primary method used by the County to track parcels.
If an address for the parcel is in the Planning and Building database, it
will be listed; otherwise the location field will be blank.
What should I do if my parcel is not found?
If your search does not find a parcel number, first verify with the
Assessor that the parcel is a legitimate active parcel. Then contact
Planning & Building staff by phone or email to determine your zoning.
