Planning

The Planning Division is responsible for enforcing the City's development standards as identified in the Zoning Ordinance to ensure that all existing and future development is consistent with the City's General Plan, which identifies the City's long-range plans.

 As new development is proposed, the Planning Division coordinates the review of land use entitlement applications such as Development Plan Reviews, Conditional Use Permits, Variances, Tentative Tract and Parcel Maps, etc. with all applicable City departments/divisions and outside agencies. The Planning Division also ensures that the planning process complies with all State and Federal environmental review requirements and provides general zoning information to the public. Planning Staff serves as the secretary to the Planning Commission.
