Zoning codes vary from city to city. In addition to zoning, you may watch for overlay coridors, or other limitations of use, such as prohibiting open storage on industrial zoned lots unless fully fenced with wood, not allowing metal fencing, etc. The list is endless, depending on the creativity and willingness of city staff, and planning and zoning board, to restrict property owners within the governing authority's jurisdiction.

I suspect that the C stands for ConSERVation, not ConVERSation. And, respecting Mr. Jirasek, there is a uniformity to the codes.  R will always be Residential, for example.  Just combine the two codes: A-R would be agricultural/residential, meaning it is probably farmland, and RC would be Residential Conservation, meaning your home would be restricted to be within whatever conservation codes your city/county/whatever applies to that land.  And in response to Mr. Brennand's question, as I understand it, there is no difference between residential and MODULAR housing zones. This is because a modular home goes on a foundation. MOBILE homes are another critter altogether, and there ARE differences there. DISCLAIMER: this is all gathered from hours of research, web surfing, reading codes online, general knowledge of codes for cities in two different states, prior work for engineering firms, and common sense. I have no real estate training or zoning code training whatsoever.

I  further suspect that the C stands for Commercial and neither Conservation or Conversation.

In an area zoned AR, does each property choose agricultural or residential zoning so either a specific property is either or? Or is every single property in an AR zone both agricultural and residential ?

I believe that the separation of residential, commercial, and industrial space into separate pockets of land is going to be somehow modified. Many people want to live, work, and play in the same location. We see more and more communities in L.A. where people can work and live.
