Siskiyou County Planning is one of the five Divisions within the County's Public Health and Community Development Department.
The Division serves as the land use information center for the County and functions as the professional staff to the Board of Supervisors and the Planning Commission. The Division disseminates information to the public regarding potential development areas for residential, commercial, industrial, and resource development and management.
The Division is responsible for the maintenance and implementation of the County General Plan, the County's Zoning Ordinance Plan, and implementation of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). The Division processes development applications and permit requests for land divisions, use permits, General Plan amendments, zone changes, and variances. It also processes permits and enforces state requirements for the Surface Mining and Reclamation Act (SMARA).
Within the Division, the staff of our Geographic Information System provides mapping services to many sectors of County government and other public agencies. Our GIS staff also maintains and implements the County's street naming and addressing system and provides address related information for the County's Emergency 911 response program.
