Community Development Department

The Mission of the Community Development Department is to promote the public health, safety, and welfare of the City’s residents. The Department strives to foster and ensure safe, sanitary, thriving living and working environments, and to help retain and enhance the quality of life of our citizens.

The Community Development Department achieves these goals through effective planning and balanced economic development/redevelopment; adoption and enforcement of the Planning, Zoning, Building, Housing, and Non-residential Property Maintenance Codes. The Department also oversees the construction, alteration, and maintenance of the housing and non-residential building stock.
