Community Development


Vision Statement

Community Development Department counter hours:
8 a.m. to 5 p.m.Monday through Friday

The Community Development Department, which houses the Planning and Building Division, Engineering Services, Economic Development,  and Code Enforcement is a ‘one stop’ center for development in the City of Lincoln.

The Department provides a broad array of community services to Lincoln residents and businesses.  As a ‘One-Stop’ center for development, the Community Development Department is dedicated to creating a smooth flow of your project in a single department.  No longer will developers and residents be required to visit various departments and areas within City Hall to have their questioned answered.  A single phone call, a single point of contact will create a positive experience for anyone developing in the City of Lincoln.

This section contains information about all aspects of developing property and/or projects within the City. While all City departments are involved in at least some aspects of development, the  Community Development Department receives and processes the actual development applications, which include Conditional Use Permits, Subdivision Mapping, Design Review, and Building Permits. This department page will connect you to detailed information about development that is planned or is under way within the City, as well as specific requirements for those who are interested in developing residential, commercial, or industrial land. Any development within the City of Lincoln must comply with the Lincoln General Plan and the Municipal Code, as well as state and federal regulations. No building, structure, sign or vehicle may be erected, moved, enlarged, or stored in the City of Lincoln without complying with the Zoning Ordinance. 

If the information you are seeking is not found this section, please contact the Community Development Department, City of Lincoln, 600 Sixth Street, Lincoln CA, 95648 or by phone at (916) 434-2470. The Community Development Department counter hours are 8am to 5pm Monday through Thursday, and 8am to Noon on Fridays.
