Community Development

Welcome to the Community Development page! You are encouraged to access the links and pages on the left column to learn about the services offered by the department.

The Community Development Department (Department) is comprised of Planning, Economic Development, Building & Safety, Business Licensing and Film Permits. The Department helps guide the orderly development of the community and ensures that new development is attractive and compatible with the surroundings and consistent with the City’s codes and policies.  

The Department's primary roles include the day-to-day administration of the City's land use regulations, building permit review, and creation of a vibrant and stable local business community, while implementing the City’s General Plan and ensuring compliance with the Zoning Code and other City and State regulations. Community Department partners with other departments and agencies to stimulate economic growth, create new jobs, and plan for long-term development in the City.

A COVID-19 page has been developed on the City’s website with resources for businesses, employees, renters, residents, and seniors. As we continue to navigate through this pandemic, we will do our best to ensure that you are kept updated on recent developments. Please visit the COVID-19 link on the left column for continuous updates.
