Planning Department


*Important Office Notice*
We have resumed in-person customer service. Office hours are Tuesdays and Thursday, 10am to 4pm with a lunchtime closure - 12:00 - 1:00pm. Masks are required in the office unless you bring your vaccination card to demonstrate you are a full two weeks out from your final COVID-19 vaccination.

The Department is experiencing some staffing transitions that may increase timelines or our ability to respond quickly.  We are also modifying our long-range update scopes.  For more information, please read our staffing transition statement.

Appointments with staff are encouraged and can be accommodated Monday-Friday. We also offer video calls. We strongly encourage customers to contact us first by phone or email to determine whether an in-person visit is necessary. Please scroll down for many online available tools and resources.  

Thank you for your patience during this time.
