Planning / Zoning Department

Planning is a way to manage the development of land within the City and Fringe area to prevent land-use conflicts. It is a systematic assessment of land and water potential, alternatives for land use, and economic and social conditions in order to select and adopt the best land-use options. One element of planning is a Comprehensive Plan, a plan that provides a vision for the future possibilities of development in neighborhoods, districts, cities, or any defined planning area. To enforce the Comprehensive Plan, the Commission establishes the Zoning and Subdivision Control Ordinances to provide standards for such development. The purpose of planning is to further the welfare of people and their communities by creating convenient, equitable, healthful, efficient, and attractive environments for present and future generations.
