Welcome to the Planning Division
We are here to provide you with information and assist with the application process regarding the use and standards for development within the City limits. Staff reviews requests for Development Permits, Home Occupation Permits, Sign Permits, Special Event Permits, Temporary Use Permits, Commercial Vehicle Parking Permits, and Special Use Permits.
The Planning Department, a division within the Public Works Department, provides professional and technical support, analysis and recommendations on land use requests to the City Council, Planning Commission, and to other departments and agencies.
The role of staff is to follow and adhere to the rules, procedures and requirements including the General Plan and Municipal Code as adopted by the City Council and mandated by State and Federal Laws. Staff's ability to interpret the Municipal Code, and its requirement to enforce the rules and regulations as written, have been established by the Council and are limited. While all effort shall be taken to provide prompt, courteous, and correct information and service to the community, staff does not have the authority to change, ignore, or bend the adopted requirements of the Municipal Code.
For other questions related to the actual physical development of the property, such as the construction of buildings on a site (where building permits are required), street improvements, utility installation, Code Enforcement issues, and possible fiscal incentives or assistance, please refer to the Departments & Services or Links page.
