Welcome to the Planning Department

The Planning Department focuses on planning and implementing standards that maintain the City’s physical environment and quality of life. Planning is the first point of contact for homeowners, business owners and developers that are intending to construct new structures on privately-owned property. The Department administers the General Plan and the Zoning Code, two documents that establish standards and regulations for physical improvements on property and also for determining what types of businesses are allowed on each property. The Planning Department functions as the professional and technical adviser to the Planning Commission and City Council on policy matters and issues concerning physical development in the City.

As development is a team effort, the Planning Department coordinates with other City Departments such as Public Works, Fire, Business License and the Community Development Commission. Planning staff assists the public in a business friendly manner while communicating the standards required by the General Plan and Zoning Code.

You will find a variety of development information on the website. If you cannot find the desired information or need further assistance in understanding requirements or process, please contact us at (626) 939-8422 or come to the Planning counter on the second floor, Room 208, at City Hall. We are happy to assist you.
