Planning & Building Departments

The Planning Division provides pre-development assistance and processes applications for land use permits, development projects, subdivisions, and conducts environmental review consistent with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA).

The Department is guided by a Planning Commission comprised of five volunteer commissioners who meet monthly or otherwise as needed to review projects and Development Agreements.
