Community & Economic Development

The Community and Economic Development (CED) Department promotes and oversees development in the community through land use planning, increase in and improvement of housing, regular property maintenance, enforcement of construction regulations, and improved design aesthetics throughout the city. 

 The Department performs these services to enhance economic opportunities and desired livability for residents of the City. Many of these services also provide opportunities for residents to be involved in the process. Public forums and open houses allow for residents to express what they would like to see happen in the community as well as specific comments on ongoing projects. In this way CED hopes to create a partnership with community members as well as offering diverse opportunities to provide feedback and comments.
