The City Plan Department facilitates the physical development of the City and encourages the development of sustainable land use, economic, and social policy. We are responsible for the Comprehensive Plan of Development, as well as other area-specific development plans.
We work with city agencies, commissions, and boards to provide planning, zoning, and development information and advice, assisting residents, businesses, and developers in achieving the City's development objectives.
