Tentative Tract Map

A Tentative Tract Map is required by law to divide property into five (5) legal lots or more for certain projects that because of their nature or operation may affect neighboring properties. In order to ensure compatibility with neighboring properties, The Planning Commission will review items such as building placement, traffic, relationship with surrounding properties, and the operation of the use. The Planning Commission may require certain conditions that ensure that the proposed use will not cause an adverse impact to the neighborhood.


  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 preparing 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 for 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 the application. The conditions of approval and recommendation to the Planning Commission will be items that were previously discussed with the applicants. Members of the public will be provided with an opportunity to make comments on the project. Decisions of the Planning Commission are final unless appealed to the City Council.

To ensure that applicants have gathered all the necessary documents and information, a list of Tentative Tract Map Submittal requirements and a Tentative Tract Map Application  have been created.

Prior to submitting a Tentative Tract Map Application, please call the Planning Division at (626) 569-2140 or visit the office located at Rosemead City Hall, 8838 E. Valley Blvd. Planning Division counter hours are Monday through Thursday, 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
