The Community Development Department is responsible for current and long-term planning, community development grants, environmental compliance, historic preservation, development permitting, and related services (e.g., economic development) for the City of King.  On this web page you will find information about ongoing projects, community development documents, and much more.

Recent master plans and specific plans have been adopted for key areas of the community, including the Downtown Addition Specific Plan, the West Broadway Master Plan, the First Street Corridor Master PlanHistoric Corridor Revitalization Plan, Airport Master Plan, San Lorenzo Creek Plan and the East Ranch Business Park Specific Plan. These plans will guide the future of the City as we pursue a diverse employment base, an expanding tourism industry and identity of the historic elements of the City.

The City of King, located in the center of one of the most productive agricultural valleys in the world, is also the primary access portal to the newly designated Pinnacles National Park, located a short drive to the east of the City. Our diverse and beautiful area is ideally located for many types of industries because of its proximity to the National Park, the beautiful San Antonio Mission, vineyards, wineries, and historic areas described in “John Steinbeck” novels.
