Planning Division

The Planning Division provides staff support to the City Council and Planning Commission in formulating and administering plans, programs, development standards and legislation for guiding the City's development in a manner consistent with the City’s General Plan.  The Division’s primary goal is to ensure and enhance the quality of life in the City through the administration of the La Puente Municipal Code relative to zoning and subdivisions, the City’s General Plan, the California Environmental Quality Act, and a variety of interrelated laws involving the public health, safety and welfare.  It accomplishes these goals through current and advanced planning responsibilities. 

Current Planning

Current Planning includes the processing of applications for Conditional Use Permits, Site Plan and Design Review Applications, land subdivisions, residential and commercial remodels, signage, temporary outdoor promotional sales permits (TOPs), and design review.  The Division approves applications administratively or prepares and presents completed applications for development permits to the Planning Commission / Development review Board and City Council.  

Advanced Planning

Advanced Planning includes the review and update of the City’s General Plan, the Zoning Code and all planning related Municipal Code updates.  The General Plan provides the basic constitution for development within the City.  It is comprised of five elements that set the goals and policies of the City and was comprehensively updated in 2004.  The Zoning Code implements the General Plan goals and policies.  It sets uniform development regulations for each zoning designation within the City.
