The Pacifica Planning Department provides for the orderly growth, development and redevelopment of the City through the application and implementation of the Pacifica General Plan, Local Coastal Land Use Plan, Pacifica Zoning Ordinance, building codes, Rockaway Beach Specific Plan, design guidelines, and related policies and procedures. 

The department takes the lead in state mandated environmental review for all development applications. Planning department staff act as the liaison between applicants and other City departments and divisions, and provides technical assistance and guidance to the Pacifica Planning Commission and other City committees. Department staff also review sign applications, Home Occupation Permits and Business Licenses; perform building permit plan checks; conduct site inspections; undertake special projects and studies; and respond to a wide range of planning and development related inquiries. Through its building and code enforcement functions, the department reviews and issues building permits and helps to ensure compliance with applicable codes and regulations.
