In addition, the Division takes the lead in state-mandated environmental review on all development applications.

Planning Division staff is the liaison between applicants and other City departments and divisions and provides technical assistance and guidance to the Millbrae Planning Commission. Division staff also reviews sign applications, Home Occupation Permits, Business Licenses, and other "over-the-counter" permits, performs plan checks, conducts site inspections, undertakes special projects and studies, and responds to a wide range of planning and development related inquiries.
