Development Review Process
The Planning Division reviews private development applications for conformance with City plans, ordinances and policies related to zoning, design, neighborhood compatibility, land use, subdivision of land, and the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). The process also includes preliminary review by other City Departments, such as Fire, Building & Safety, Transportation, Public Works, Burbank Water & Power, Parks and Recreation, and Police.
Following Planning Division review, if an application is approved by a decision maker, detailed construction plans are reviewed by all City Departments. Upon completeness, construction permits are issued by Building & Safety, Public Works, and authorized by Burbank Water & Power.
