The Planning Division is responsible for assisting the City Council and Planning Commission in establishing land use policies and plans and subsequently implementing them. The City’s land use policies and plans are intended to help insure orderly growth and development, including but not limited to adequate infrastructure (streets, water, sewers, etc.) to serve the community now and  into the foreseeable future. The City’s General Plan is the document containing the City’s land use policy, and the City’s specific plans and Zoning Code are implementation tools. All land use related applications and entitlements are processed through the Planning Division.
