Community Development

The Department of Community Development includes three divisions: Planning & Zoning, Code Compliance, and Business Tax Receipts. These divisions work together to ensure compliance with planning and zoning codes, administer the business tax receipt program, provide code enforcement citywide. The Community Development Department organizes and manages development and improvement of the City’s neighborhoods, engaging in planning efforts to shape, preserve, and enhance the existing urban fabric of the area while protecting the health, safety, and welfare of its citizens through the enforcement of the City codes, policies, and ordinances.
