Planning & Building


The Department of Planning & Building is organized to align itself with the priorities and philosophies of the City's Strategic Plan. The department divisions are organized to fit within one of three key service areas:



  • Community Services:  Includes Advanced Planning, Code Enforcement and Housing divisions
  • Development Services:  Responsible for managing the Planning & Building counter and providing assistance to the public to facilitate building permits, ministerial permits and planning permits
  • Management Services:  Oversees the efficient operation of the Department

Through this alignment, we are better able to.....

  • Streamline service delivery
  • Clarify how the various roles/functions interrelate
  • Clarify how individual responsibilities fit within the bigger picture
  • Help identify and prioritize process improvements
  • Help respond to staff, applicant, and public input and concerns
