Planning Department

The Planning Department reviews proposed development for compliance with the Town’s General Plan and Zoning Ordinance and prepares long range planning and policy documents. The Department is also responsible for the updates on the General Plan elements; issues use permits, processes building related applications, CEQA studies, and Environmental Impact Reviews.

The Department provides support to the Planning Commission and City Council on development and land use matters, and coordinates with the Pathways, Environmental Design and Protection, and the Open Space Committees in the review of development permit applications.

For questions regarding the planning process and timeline for obtaining a Site Development Permit, please review the Site Development Process Road Map.
