The City of Mt. Shasta’s Planning Department is administered by the City Planner and the Planning Commission. The Planning Department has primary responsibility for zoning and land use permits as well as long-range planning and local administration of State environmental review laws. These activities include the review and management of public and private development proposals, such as subdivisions, use permits, site development permits, variances, General Plan amendments, rezonings, and a variety of other zoning permits.
Environmental review responsibilities are principally defined by the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), which requires preparation of environmental impact determinations, environmental impact reports, and coordination with other local, State, and Federal agencies.
Another essential function for the Planning Department is to provide the public with information and guidance concerning development, General Plan policies, zoning district regulations, permit procedures, floodplain boundaries, planning statistics, property information, growth trends, and other information relevant to land use and the orderly development of the community.
