Planning Services

The Planning Division manages long-range planning and research, review of zoning applications, and other development requests to ensure compliance with City requirements. The division works closely with property owners, developers, the community, and other city staff on a variety of projects.

The zoning regulations have been made with reasonable consideration, among other things, for the character of the district and its special suitability for the particular use, and with a view to conserving the value of buildings, and encouraging the most appropriate use of land throughout the City.
