Planning & Community Development
The department is the lead agency for both physical and economic development of the city. It serves as staff to planning, zoning, and preservation committees and reviews all residential and commercial development plans, all zoning and subdivision platting, and provides all long range planning for the city. Such plans deal with all elements of the physical design and development of the city, which include historic preservation and urban design.

The Community Development Division administers funds provided to the city from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Under the guidance and direction of the city council, the funds are used to assist individuals, private developers, and not-for-profit organizations in the production of:
  • New housing
  • The rehabilitation of existing housing
  • Neighborhood redevelopment
  • Public improvements
  • The creation of business and employment opportunities
