What We Do


The Community Development Department works to foster community dialogue about issues involving the built and natural environment. By planning for the future, the community works to solve current problems, anticipate future needs and analyze alternatives which will help shape tomorrow and create opportunities for future generations. Projects commonly handled by the Planning Division include developing future plans for the Town, reviewing new commercial and housing projects and assisting in the development of affordable housing.

The Division of Building Inspection is responsible for the enforcement of the California Code of Regulations to safeguard the public health and welfare and access to persons with disabilities.

Who We Are


The Community Development Department is staffed by professionals who have specialized knowledge in a wide range of issues, including Community Development and Land Use Planning, Building Codes and Permits, Code Enforcement, Environmental Review, Urban Design, and Affordable Housing.
