Planning & Zoning

The planners are responsible for both long range and short range planning.  Our long range planning includes preparing an annual General Plan implementation report, preparing specific plans, and updating the Zoning Code. Our short range planning includes reviewing plans for new construction and new businesses in the City.  

Temple City Housing Survey:  Please take 5 minutes to fill out a housing survey.  Your input will help us update the City’s Housing Element.  The Housing Element is one of the seven required chapters of the City’s General Plan. It is the primary tool used by the State to ensure that a local government is planning for and can accommodate enough housing across all income levels. The Housing Element is updated every eight years. 

News:  The City is updating the Housing Element of the General Plan.  If you want to give your input or learn about Temple City's housing policies visit our Housing Element webpage on the left.
