Community Development Department
The Community Development Department analyzes and enforces land use-related issues in the city, including accepting citizen requests, providing land use data, and processing applications.
Variance & Zoning (Annexation, Rezoning, Special Use)
City Community Development will be glad to work with an applicant to confirm that all details of a case application are completed. Fee varies by type of case and proposed zoning.
Zoning-related cases have local and State advertising requirements, resulting in a process that takes a few months from start of process to date of decision by City Council.
Variance cases include advertising requirements and the process may take two months or longer depending on certain factors such as if a case is tabled. Decision is made by the Unified Zoning Board.
Zoning-related cases and Variance cases are not guaranteed. Applicant or knowledgeable representative needs to attend all public meetings.
