The Planning Department was created in 1984 as a component of the City Manager’s Office.

The Planning Department is responsible for guiding development and managing future growth patterns within the City. It proposes and implements programs, projects and legislation that positively affect the development of the City as a community. Topics that fall under the purview of Planning include Zoning, downtown revitalization, tree planting, historic preservation, housing programs and economic development.

Many of the plans, projects and programs within those categories involve writing grant applications and contract administration. The Planning Department also administers the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program, a Federal grant used to fund various projects in the City, and provides staff support to the Planning Board and Zoning Board of Appeals.
