The Department of Planning and Zoning is responsible for the processing of zoning cases, variances to the Zoning Ordinance, street and alley abandonments, subdivision plat review, and annexation requests. In the area of zoning enforcement, this department notifies property owners when a zoning violation has occurred, or violations within a planned development designation.
This Department's mission is to amend the Zoning Ordinance so as to promote the orderly growth and expansion of the city and the continued implementation and revision of the Comprehensive Plan.
In support of our mission, City staff strives to provide friendly, efficient and timely planning services for our customers. Below are a few compliments we have received about our staff.
“Thanks for the quick response. Breath of fresh working with a City that wants to do business.”
“I wanted to personally thank you and your staff for returning my call within the hour and taking the extra steps to help research a parcel property for me. As hotel appraisers, we daily speak with city departments. Not often do we have the opportunity to work with such professionals like you all.”
