Department of Community Development

The Department of Community Development (DCD) is responsible for all matters affecting the physical development of the City. DCD assists residents and businesses on development, long-range planning, environmental sustainability of projects and programs that impact the City, and code enforcement. It also oversees the City’s Recycling and Commute Trip Reduction programs.

DCD is guided by the City’s Strategic Plan, as well as the long range community blueprint set forth in the Comprehensive Plan. Using goals and policies from these community documents, DCD strives to ensure that the type, scale, character and location of development – both private and public – reflects the community’s vision and values.

The Comprehensive Plan shows how the City will meet the community needs for land, public facilities and infrastructure based upon a 20 year forecast of housing and job growth.  Click here to learn about the 2024-2044 Comprehensive Plan Update and how you can get involved!

The Zoning Code sets forth regulations that directly impact land use and development in the City.
