The role of the Planning Division is to implement the City's vision and goals for community development and land use as established in the Westminster General Plan. Learn more about our General Plan Vision Statement.

The Planning Division is involved with a wide range of activities ranging from processing applications for development projects to conducting complex policy and research studies. The Division also advises the Planning Commission and City Council on various topics including architecture/design, environmental analysis, and land use.

A central responsibility of the Planning Division is to implement the City’s comprehensive General Plan and Zoning Ordinance. The two basic areas of planning include current planning, which focuses on new development in the City; and advanced planning, which deals with the long-term goals, objectives, and programs of the City.
