The Planning and Development Services Department operates under the guidance of the City’s Development Philosophy which emphasizes customer service to facilitate the timely review and approval of projects, as well as ensuring that stakeholders are included in the development of regulatory ordinances. In short, the Development Philosophy is to “Make it Happen.” We pride ourselves on ensuring that development projects are handled in a professional, timely, consistent, and accurate manner. Our goal is to build a partnership with our customers, including design professionals, businesses, residents and community stakeholders. We welcome the opportunity to discuss any concerns you may have. You are our top priority!
