Planning & Building Inspections

Welcome to the Department of Planning & Building Inspections!
Our goal is to protect the safety and welfare of the public and to enhance the general quality of life for our citizens and visitors by: ensuring land use conforms to local regulations, ensuring zoning and procedures are equitable, beneficial, and open to public scrutiny, and helping honor our past and prepare for our future.

Our staff is charged with balancing regulations and customer support that maintain a constructive relationship with our developers and citizens.
