The Planning Division staff provides technical assistance to the City Council and Commissions in the creation and implementation of city regulations, financial and administrative procedures, including review of the General Plan, Zoning Ordinance, and other land-use related laws. The Planning Division is responsible for reviewing development activities on private as well as public land, facilitating economic development and redevelopment, affordable housing, and assistance with planning the design of City-owned facilities.
Planning and Building Division staff work together to help permit applicants identify land use development design or use options that implement the laws the community has created for itself. The Department’s goal is to continually improve our efficiency and effectiveness in our charter to help each resident, property and business owner through the permitting and design process. We want to help make the applicant’s construction and/or development idea a reality and encourage your input on how we can improve our service to you balanced with the interests of the community as a whole.
