Planning and Development Services

Planning Division – current planning related to site plans, conditional use permits, zoning enforcement, environmental review & general plan implementation.

Building Division – guidance on new construction projects, issuance of building permits, and plan check services, as well as inspections.

Engineer Division – parcel maps, lot lines, utility master plans, and plan reviews for public & private construction projects.
