The Planning Office seeks to ensure an orderly and sustainable development of the City.
The Department is responsible for initial advisement on and subsequent review of all development proposals submitted to the City.
Proposals are reviewed for their conformity to zoning regulations, site development standards, adopted land use and other considerations relative to the overall cohesive growth and development of the community.
The Planning Office also facilitates public input through public information meetings and public hearings.
The Planning Office services two committees:
Plan Review Board, which deals with minor issues such as signs and limited revisions to a development's plan and method
Plan Commission, which makes recommendations on all new plan and methods, major redevelopments, any zoning changes or revisions, Master Plan updates, and all Plan Review Board actions.
