Downtown Development Handbook
The City created the Downtown Development Handbook to be a useful reference for the business community and members of the public to better understand Stockton's development process. The handbook serves as a guide to navigate the City's planning entitlement process and also provides direction to other aspects of developing downtown. See External Links below for the Downtown Development Handbook.
