We also provide high quality construction permitting, plan review and building inspection services in a way that is responsive and customer friendly.
Inspectors & Enforcement Officers are in during the morning hours only, for discussion, plan review and consultation regarding the filing of applications for Zoning Compliance, or petitions to the Zoning Board of Appeals and the Planning and Zoning Commission.

The Zoning Department promotes strategic growth and development in the City, in part, by initiating comprehensive, consensus-based planning and zoning changes for individual neighborhoods and business districts. It supports the City Planning Commission and each year reviews more than 500 land use applications for actions such as zoning changes and disposition of City property. The Department assists both government agencies and the public by providing policy analysis and technical assistance relating to housing, transportation, community facilities, demography and public space.
