Planning & Zoning

The Planning & Zoning division oversees the review of current development proposals and long-range planning activities. Staff reviews development proposals with the aid of the City Code of Ordinances, Comprehensive Plan and other adopted long-range guidance documents, recommendations from Planning & Zoning Commission, and policies established by the City Council. The Planning & Zoning division also serves as support staff to various commissions and boards associated with the Community Development Department.

The primary responsibility of a planner is to serve the public interest. The Planning & Zoning division seeks to exemplify this sentiment by providing expedient, efficient, and attentive service to the citizens of Pleasant Hill.
