Do I need a Planning permit?

Planning permits are required for most new development projects, new businesses, or projects requiring special exceptions from City Zoning standards, like setback adjustments, variances or modifications of parking standards.

Permit Applications

Permit applications are available at the Public Counter at City Hall and on the City’s website. The City’s Community Development Department processes zoning and other discretionary land use permit applications. Most permit applications require public notice and/or a public hearing. The Community Development Director can take final action on some types of minor permits; however most development permit applications require final action by the five-member Planning Commission or the City Council.
