The Planning Department Department is responsible for implementing City Council's policy through the review of proposed development projects. They provide support to the public, developers, City staff, City Council, and Planning Commission, while ensuring the environmental sustainability of proposed public and private projects.
Apart from processing development applications for both small and large projects, the Planning Team assists the public and those interested in development with any planning related questions or concerns. Planning ensures that the City remains up-to-date in regard to state and federal planning and environmental mandates, and updates planning operations in response to changes in these regulations.
In order to achieve these goals, the Planning Team coordinates meetings of the Planning Commission and assists the Community Enhancement and Safety Division with interpreting Zoning Code in potential code enforcement cases. We strive on enhancing the community while remaining within all state and federal regulations.
