Tasked with the mission of promoting economic development while preserving Capitola's cultural and historic character, the Community Development Department operates the city’s building and planning divisions and administers land-use policies and standards adopted by the City Council, including the general plan, local coastal program, and zoning code, as well as design guidelines, building codes, and affordable housing policies.

During the pandemic, the planning division adjusted its processes to include electronic applications. Visit the link below for information on how to submit various applications electronically.
