The mission of the Department of Community Development to help guide the Town's planning, community development, land use, and regulatory management efforts.
It shall be the objective of the Department to help ensure that building and development project applicants submit completed applications which then receive timely review; to share information with the public about the status of all applications; to help ensure predictability of outcome with our regulatory processes, so that similar applications with similar circumstances produce similar results; and to provide for fair and equitable enforcement of regulatory decisions.
Depending on the type and scope of the project, a number of different department and/or public reviews may be required. Every project is unique and it is our goal to work with applicants so that they understand the necessary review steps and the time involved.
