Welcome to the Planning Department

Riverside County, like a quilt, is a composite of differing lifestyles connected together through common strands. The County's General Plan is designed  to ensure that the quilt retains its core identity by guiding future growth that respects the diversity of the region, shapes, and configures development in  relation to the land it occupies and ensures that its various parts relate to its whole.
It is the goal of the Planning Department to provide timely, responsive, and helpful service to all members of the public and promote innovative  development that effectively accommodates a balance of housing, employment, and service opportunities.
