The Planning Division is responsible for the administration of the General Plan and implementation of the Zoning Ordinance and Specific Plans. The division reviews plans for new and remodeled industrial and commercial development, as well as new residential development, and expansion.

Review includes consideration of the proposed use and associated aesthetic qualities of a development project or business as well as consistency with zoning regulations to determine the impact on the character of the surrounding neighborhood and ensure compatibility.

The Planning Division works closely with the City Council and Planning Commission in providing technical expertise and research capacity. Planning also approves signs and business license application based on zoning and land use requirements.
