How Can We Help You?


Community Development

The Office of Economic and Community Development (OECD) facilitates commercial and residential property development, enforces building and land use codes, and manages regional planning projects including:  neighborhood, environmental, and transportation plans.

We respond to customers seeking code enforcement information, zoning or platting applications, building permits or inspections, or land use permits for commercial marijuana.
