Tentative Parcel Map

A Tentative Parcel Map is required by state law to divide property into four (4) legal lots or less. The map will be conditioned to provide for basic services and improvements prior to any construction. The map must record within two (2) years of the date approval. A time extension to record the map may be requested from Planning Commission prior to the expiration of the map.


  1. Pre-Application meeting (s): A meeting with the Planning Division is strongly encouraged PRIOR to submitting an application. Such a meeting will help provide information in terms of requirements, standards, and fees and will help in completing the application.
  1. Development Review Committee (DRC): The DRC is an advisory committee composed of City Staff and other agencies which review projects for compliance with existing codes and standards. The DRC does not have formal decision making authority. Prior to the public hearing, a DRC meeting is scheduled. After the DRC meeting, the applicant will be advised of the conditions of approval and the City staff's recommendation on the project. There is an opportunity at this stage of the process to discuss areas of concern or differences and resolve them prior to Planning Commission and City Council Action.
  1. Planning Commission: A public hearing before the Planning Commission is conducted. At the hearing, City staff will present a report on your application. The conditions of approval and recommendations to the Planning Commission will be those discussed with the applicant previously. Members of the public will be invited to make comments on the project. The decision of the Planning Commission is final unless appealed to the City Council.

To ensure that applicants have gathered all the necessary documents and information, a list of Tentative Parcel Map Submittal Requirements and a Tentative Parcel Map Application (PDF) have been created.
