COVID-19 Planning Department Updates

  • San Bernardino County Department of Public Health recommends cancelling all non-essential public events and gatherings to minimize community exposure to COVID-19. Consistent with this recommendation, TUP applications for non-essential events and gatherings, as determined by the City, are not being accepted until further notice.  



The Planning Department plays a critical role in achieving the City Council's goals and objectives relative to land use, urban design, and the quality and sustainability of the built environment.  Our team focuses on development that enhances economic value, quality of life, and complete community.
