Welcome to the Planning Division home page, I hope you find our revised home page more "user friendly". We have added additional information regarding the many exciting new projects in La Habra that have been recently approved or are in the review process. We have rearranged our information in a way that makes it easier to use. The goal of the Planning staff is to provide you with as much information as possible to help you with designing your projects, be large or small. I encourage you to call me or my staff of friendly, helpful planners if you have any questions regarding the planning process in La Habra. We want your project to be a success.
