Land Use Planning

Waterfront Trail with Condos

Land Use Planning, often referred as current planning, implements the community’s planning and environmental goals through objective, consistent, and fair application of city development standards and procedures to all development applications. The Land Use Department, with involvement from many other departments, reviews proposed developments to ensure they meet the needs of the community at large. Planners compare how the land is used with the zoning code while building plan reviewers and engineers compare how buildings are built with the building codes and engineering standards.
