The Planning Division is responsible for the implementation and the administration of the City’s polices that direct the physical development of Clayton. All development and land use projects are analyzed for compliance with the City’s policies, which are contained in the General Plan, Specific Plans, and the Clayton Municipal Code. The Planning Division oversees both current and long ranging planning projects.
The staff within the Planning Division assists the public with questions related to home improvements, design, zoning designations, setback requirements, and provides guidance navigating the permitting process.
