About the Municipal Code

The Pismo Beach Municipal Code represents the complete, current regulations of the City of Pismo Beach. As each new ordinance is adopted by the City Council, its contents are codified and integrated into the overall Code. 

The City utilizes third-party professional codifiers to help assure the accuracy of ordinance codification; as such, updates take time to process and regulations of newly-adopted ordinances do not appear immediately in this online Code. All adopted ordinances, including those not yet codified, are available in our online Document Center.

Typically, an ordinance becomes effective 30 days from the date of its adoption by City Council. On rare occasion, an ordinance may be in effect before it is codified, or codified before it is in effect. The City Clerk's Office maintains the official copy of the City Code. Please contact the Clerk's Office at 805-773-4657 with questions about Code maintenance and ordinance adoption/effective dates.

For questions about interpreting or enforcing, or suspected violations of, the Code, please contact the Department or Division with jurisdiction over the particular matter.
