What is the Planning and Zoning Department responsible for?
The Planning and Zoning Department is responsible for current planning and long-range planning efforts. Current planning involves projects related to zoning, development review, architectural and appearance review, as well as permitting and other activities. Long-range planning involves the creation and enforcement of plans for the entire City as well as special areas related to future growth and development. Through planning we seek to enhance the quality of life of our residents.
