What is Planning?
Planning is a process that creates communities of lasting value, offering better choices for where and how people live. Planning helps community members envision the direction their community grows and find the right balance of new development, essential services, protection of the environment and innovative change.

Our Role
Our division engages civic leaders, businesses and citizens to envision new possibilities and solutions to community problems. We use the land development code and city's comprehensive plan to guide our work, processing land use applications, variances, zoning requests, subdivisions, development plans and conditional use permits. Approvals are handled by appointed boards and commissions and city council.
