Mapping Center Answer:

In ArcGIS, the Civic Style contains land use and zoning colors sourced from several origins. One of these sources is the APA, American Planning Association, through which the land use designations were obtained (shown as a LBCS activity code – and whose designation appears as the symbol category viewable under the style manager). Additional sources were several city planning departments for depiction of common zoning a few of special zoning districts. The entire collection of zoning classes serves as an example range for civic related map.

As an additional note, the LBCS is Land-based Classification Standards, refers to the actual use of land based on its observable characteristics.
