The Planning Division performs two major activities: current and advanced planning.
The Division is charged with implementing the City’s general plan and zoning ordinance. The staff works with developers to help them meet the standards adopted by the City Council. The Planning Division provides staff to the Planning Commission and the Site Plan and Architectural Review Committee.
The General Plan provides a set of policies and programs that form a blueprint for physical development throughout the community. It is a long-term document consisting of written text and diagrams that expresses how a community should develop, and is a key tool for influencing the quality of life.
