We've organized key forms and applications for the Planning and Building processes to make it easier for you to get what you need:

 

The Planning Division of the Community Development Department implements public policy and provides project review for new development in Petaluma. Residential, industrial, commercial, public improvements, whether large or small, all require careful consideration for compatibility with the City’s land use/planning goals and objectives. The Planning Division leads the effort, with other departments, to implement the City’s General Plan and participates in project management for Capital Improvement and Redevelopment/Economic Development projects.

The Planning team provides project review and environmental processing for all planning entitlement applications. Planning staff directly supports the City Council and the Planning Commission / Historic and Cultural Preservation Committee.

The Planning Division serves to interpret City policies, ordinances, and codes, and works closely with other City staff and Departments. Planning staff also develops specific proposals for action on current and future City planning needs.
