Planning Department

Welcome to the Planning Department' Website.

Our mission is to deliver quality customer service through the timely processing of development applications while maintaining and providing easy access to development-related information including case files, maps, and permits.

Currently, the department is improving processes, programs and services to respond to the new development industry market demands.

It is vitally important that the department continues to provide the best level of service to residents, visitors, property owners, business owners, developers, investors and potential investors.  So far, increase in efficiency has been achieved through changes in practice by implementing GIS (Geographic Information System) and revising regulatory codes and review processes.

The Department's priorities and focus areas include:

  • Rendition of city's vision
  • Revision of comprehensive plan
  • Ordinance update
  • Regulatory modernization
  • Technological adaptation
  • Establishment of good working relationships with community, customers, and industry partners
  • Economic Development Initiatives.
