The Planning Division provides professional guidance and technical assistance to the City Council, Planning Commission, the general public, and is responsible for managing the orderly growth and development of the City of Lincoln. This involves administering and implementing the goals, objectives, and policies of the General Plan, the Zoning and Subdivision Ordinances, and the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA).
The Planning Division reviews and processes all land use development applications to ensure that the best interests of the citizens of Lincoln are served. These land use entitlement applications include (among others) specific plans, tentative mapping, environmental documents, conditional use permits, design review, development agreements, and amendments to the General Plan, Zoning, or Subdivision Ordinances.
The Planning Division participates in the planning and implementation of development projects by providing direct support services with attendance of all meetings of the Planning Commission. The Planning Division also acts on items including, but not limited to, building permits, grading permits, improvement plan review, sign permits, and all business licenses.
