Planning Division

The Daly City Planning Division, is a part of the Economic and Community Development Department, is located on the main floor of City Hall. The Planning counter is open to the public for questions and information from 8:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. Monday through Friday.  Our phone number is (650) 991-8033.

The Planning Division administers, prepares and maintains the provisions of the City's Zoning Ordinance and General Plan. The provisions of the Zoning Ordinance are enforced to assure orderly, attractive development while the General Plan sets a vision for future development in the City through land use goals and policies established by the City Council. The Division also provides technical staff services to the Planning Commission, the City Council, Design Review Committees and the Successor Agency to Redevelopment. Code enforcement is coordinated by the Code Enforcement Officer, ensuring timely compliance with the Municipal Code and promoting community pride through self-help.

Our goal is to preserve and enhance the City's physical, economic, and social environment through implementation of effective short and long-range planning principles.
