pictureThe Planning Division provides guidance for the safe and orderly development of the community. This mission is accomplished through programs that encourage high quality development as well as maintenance and reinvention of existing neighborhoods. The goal is to create a safe, healthy, attractive, and economically strong place to enjoy life. We ensure that new development is attractive and compatible with its surroundings and in keeping with the vision that will shape and define Loma Linda into the next century.

Overseeing this work is the Planning Division, whose efforts ensure that our homes, our streets, our buildings, our businesses, and even our open spaces reflect the qualities that make Loma Linda special. Planners provide a variety of services to the public, including zoning information, land use information, assistance with permits, current planning, and long-range planning. We can answer your questions about zoning, residential development or modification, commercial projects, parking requirements, development standards, procedures, signs, and home business information. The Planning Division also anticipates and acts on the need for new plans, policies, and Zoning Code changes.

Depending on the nature of a proposal, development approval may be issued by the Community Development Director, the Planning Commission, or the City Council. Typically the less complex proposals may be approved by the Community Development Director, while the more complicated projects with greater impacts require approval by the Planning Commission or the City Council.

Planners provide staff support to the City Council, Planning Commission, and several City Commissions, Committees, and Boards. The Planning Division works with several other local agencies, such as the Water District and the School District. The Planning Division is also responsible for the provision of liaison in coordination with regional and state planning agencies.

To process minor applications over the counter, permits may only be issued between 8:00 through 10:00 a.m.

For further information, call the Community Development Department Monday through Thursday 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at (909) 799-2830.
