The prime functions of Planning are to provide timely reviews of development proposals for conformance with the City's regulations, including site plan, conditional use and subdivision review. Planning provide prompt and efficient processing of applications, as well as prompt attention to concerns raised by residents regarding particular developments. At all times, we strive to ensure that the Zoning Ordinances and Subdivision Regulations of the City are administered consistently and fairly. In addition, we work closely with the Planning Board to modify the City's zoning ordinance and subdivision regulations.

The Planning Board meets twice a month, generally on the first and third Tuesday. It is given the responsibility of approving subdivisions, site plans, and conditional uses. Other actions include recommendations to the City Council on contract zoning applications, and zone text and map changes.
