Agendas and Minutes
The Planning Department prepares, maintains, and implements the City’s General Plan, associated Specific Plans, and other planning and policy documents that guide the physical development of the community. Department staff assists residents, businesses, designers, developers, and architects to understand and follow the City’s policies and regulations for development, including the General Plan, the Main Street/Gateway Specific Plan, the Milpitas Metro Specific Plan, and the Zoning Ordinance.
The Department collaborates with other City departments to administer other development policies and regulations, including the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). The Department promotes informed decision-making by facilitating community and neighborhood meetings, as needed, and providing administrative support to the Planning Commission.
