In April 2011, the Mayor created the Planning and Development department. It is comprised of the former Development Services, Planning and Real Estate/Economic Development departments. The department is responsible for the implementation of the City's comprehensive plan, development permitting and building permit review and inspection services for all private development within our city. In March 2014, real estate, parking garage maintenance and parking meter maintenance and enforcement services moved from Planning & Development to the Mayor's Office of Economic Development and Asset Management Departments.
