The Planning Division of the Community Development Department operates to assist citizens, businesses, and City departments in managing land to insure that land use complies with the General Plan and Zoning regulations and meets the needs of the City and its citizens, among other things. The Planning Division does this by maintaining records of zoning districts, subdivision maps, site plans, conditional use permits, etc. They also provide assistance in the selling or purchasing of real property and rule on land use permits, site plans, and zoning violations.
Whether you are planning to build or modify your home or business or transact real property, you will need to work with the Planning Division before proceeding. The Division coordinates with the Planning Commission to process and review site plans and subdivision maps and approve land use and other zoning applications.
In addition, the Division works with the Planning Commission and City Council to modify and update the City's General Plan and Zoning Ordinance. The General Plan defines the long range goals and intentions regarding the nature and direction of future development within the City. It contains elements on land use, transportation, park and recreational facilities, urban design, and housing, as well as details regarding the City's zoning districts.
