The Town of Discovery Bay does not have land use or zoning authority. However, the Town can and does advise the County on decisions affecting the community. The Town works with the County to ensure new development compliments existing properties.
There are a number of projects that are winding their way through the Contra Costa County Planning process. Most of those projects are relatively small, consisting of in-fill single family home construction, remodels, and business applications. There are larger development projects that are approved for Discovery Bay.
