About the Building & Development Services Department

The Building & Development Services Department (BDS) is generally responsible for development, implementation, and enforcement of the City’s Zoning, Subdivision, Development, and Building regulations, as well as other relevant State and Local laws.

BDS serves as the primary contact and facilitator for the Zoning and Planning Commission, the City Building Commission, and the Board of Adjustment.

Additionally, BDS manages the City’s Geographic Information System (GIS), which provides city staff and the general public with current maps and database information.

No Solicitation List
