Who We Are

The Community Development Department has four divisions. The Administration Division is responsible for the administration and provision of services for the Department divisions. The Building Division is responsible for reviewing construction plans, issuing building permits, and managing building inspections. The Code Compliance Division is responsible for investigating complaints regarding compliance with City codes, seeking and negotiating resolution of code violations, systematically inspecting multiple-family rental housing for compliance with City codes, and educating the community to ensure safe and attractive neighborhoods. The Planning Division is responsible for developing and updating the city’s comprehensive plan and its various elements; for implementing the comprehensive plan through the review of development and rezoning applications and through the writing, updating, and implementing of land use regulations, including zoning; and the City’s historic preservation programs.

The Community Development Department works closely with all city departments, but our Development Review Team also consists of team members from Economic Development and Engineering/Public Works.
