About Development Services

The City’s Development Services Department provides planning, land development, building, fire safety, and permit coordination services for anyone undergoing any type of construction within the city to ensure compliance with applicable city and building codes. It includes the Building Safety / Code Enforcement, and Planning divisions.

Development Services also works closely with the Public Works Department on development projects. Staff from the Engineering Division provide plan review and construction inspection on development projects to ensure developments meet City requirements for streets, water and sewer facilities, and other public infrastructure. 

It is the goal of the City to be responsive to customers, to be effective in internal communication, and to achieve efficiency in the City by helping developers and citizens obtain the services they need in primarily one location.

Please explore our Development Manual to learn more about where we’ve been, where we are and where we’re going.
