Planning and Zoning
The Community Development Division establishes short and long-term land-use planning for the City by working with development proposals and the Planning Commission. Community Development staff members also interpret and enforce the Zoning Code, Design Guidelines, and Sign Code, as well as the Subdivision Ordinance, and implement the Comprehensive Plan, which guides land use, zoning, transportation, and community facility improvements or anticipated changes.
The Planning Commission prepares and maintains the Comprehensive Plan for the physical development of the City. The Commission also serves as the Board of Appeals and Adjustments of Variance and Appeal Cases and acts as an advisory board to the City Council on matters pertaining to Conditional Use Permit applications and zoning amendments and appeals.
