What are the responsibilities of the Planning Division verses the Building Division?
The Planning Division is responsible for regulating the type, scale, and design of land use that may be established at a given location. The Municipal Code, together with the General Plan and the official zoning map, regulate land use for compatibility with surrounding uses. Development standards are included for density, height, yards and open space, parking requirements, landscaping, and irrigation, etc.


The Building Division is responsible for structural and life safety concerns in the construction, demolition, or alteration of buildings including, but not limited to, matters such as:

  • Access for the disabled

  • Electrical

  • Energy conservation

  • Mechanical systems
