The Planning Department guides the development and long-term growth of the City. It does this by administering the Comprehensive Plan, identifying and preparing amendments to development-related City code, conducting other studies and plans, assisting customers with understanding and applying development-related City codes, reviewing and inspecting certain types of permits, and managing the process for and making technical recommendations on planning cases. The Department also manages the City’s Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and FEMA Community Rating System (CRS) programs, participates in economic development issues and in the administration of the City’s Flood Hazard Prevention ordinance, serves as the City’s historic preservation office, and serves as staff for four boards – Planning Commission, Zoning Commission, Board of Zoning Adjustment, and Olde Towne Preservation District Commission.
