Providing Vision & Direction
The Planning Department administers the City's General Plan, which provides the vision and direction for the City over a 20-year period.
In the City of Hesperia, the General Plan is the overarching guide in implementation of the Development Code, which defines development standards, and the Main Street and Freeway Corridor Specific Plan, which establishes zoning districts, throughout the City.
Ensuring Conformity & Compliance
Planning ensures proposed projects conform and comply with the City's development standards and the State's environmental and subdivision regulations. Ensuring compliance helps to preserve the environment and improve the quality of life within the City.
Planning works with other City divisions, such as Building and Safety, Fire and Engineering, as well as other governmental agencies, to ensure new development has adequate infrastructure and services. Planning also provides zoning and land use process and regulation information to the general public, including:
- Property and business owners
- Real estate agents
