Planning Services


The City's planning, land use and zoning services are intended to protect, maintain and develop an attractive, safe, and healthy community by providing planning services to the general public, project applicants, and other City Departments.

The Planning Division maintains the City General Plan, Zoning Ordinance, Lake Tahoe Airport Comprehensive Land Use Plan (PDF) (CLUP), City Design Standards, Sign Ordinance, Plan Area Statements, and Community Plans. Primary functions address property development and land use activities occurring in the city. Such responsibilities include project review of plans for property development, including permitting for both public and private projects.
