Applications & Reviews
The Planning Division is responsible for processing all land-use entitlement applications that require approval from the City Council, Planning Commission, Zoning Review Committee, Department Director and/or Art in Public Place Advisory Committee. Typical land use entitlement applications include Zone Changes, Subdivision Maps, Conditional Use Permits and Design Reviews.
The City has a streamlined review process. Minor Design Reviews and smaller applications may go to the Department Director. Minor adjustments to standards and some uses may go to the Zoning Review Committee. However, most application require a public hearing before the Planning Commission for review. Projects that include a General Plan Amendment, Zone Change or Development Agreement also go the City Council for final review.
