Planning & Zoning

The Planning and Zoning staff are responsible for long range planning; regional planning and coordination; development review, analysis, and compliance; and discretionary permit processing.

The Planning and Zoning staff serve the community in a number of ways by providing information, reviewing and evaluating projects, and assisting the development community in assuring projects are designed and developed in conformance with the City's Comprehensive Plan and Land Development Regulations.  The planning staff works closely with other divisions, departments and agencies inside and outside of the City.
