Zoning provides the standards and regulations that apply to land and structures in the City of Sapulpa. These standards and regulations help implement the City's Comprehensive Plan which contain goals, policies and recommendations of how development in the city (long-term) is to be achieved.
The City of Sapulpa has numerous zoning districts. Each one has a list of permitted uses and standards for building setbacks, densities, and heights. Some have specific design guidelines.
Please refer to the Zoning Code.

Begin by discussing your project with Planning staff. Submit the application and all required documentation for review. Staff will advise if any additional information is necessary. When complete, the application is presented by the Urban Development Director to the Board of Adjustment at their monthly meeting. The Board will decide to Approve; Approve with Conditions; or Deny the request.
If the application is approved, you may apply for a building permit. If the application is denied, you may appeal the decision within ten (10) days.
A Variance is a form of relief from the zoning ordinance to permit the use of land in a way that is not otherwise permitted under the ordinance. Variances are considered if the literal application of the Zoning Code would produce an unnecessary hardship on the landowner and rendering the property virtually useless.
Financial hardship is not applicable for consideration of a Variance.
Applications for a Special Exception or a Variance are presented to the Board of Adjustment.

Many of the subdivisions in the City are subject to covenants and deed restrictions which regulate the use of property beyond the limitations contained in the City's ordinances. These deeds and covenants are private agreements between property owners and are not enforced by the City.
