Welcome to the Planning Office. Planning staff is committed to excellent customer service. Our goal is to make information accessible to the public and to make our permitting process as user-friendly as possible.
We focus our priorities on projects that will achieve the City Council-adopted Vision, Value Drivers and Strategic Initiatives.
Planning staff is constantly developing and sharpening a variety of planning tools to help clarify land use regulations, stimulate economic development, and ensure preservation of the City's neighborhood character and historic resources. If you want more information, please give us a call.
