Land Use Controls

The City's Planning and Zoning Department enforces a zoning ordinance designed to protect and promote the public health, safety, convenience, morals, and welfare of our citizens. Land uses are directed to guide future growth and development in accordance with plans set forth by our Mayor and City Council, and lot provisions help protect the character and density of our community. 

The Building Department conducts safety inspections and issues permits for all construction including new, additions, repairs, and alterations, to help ensure structures are built to the adopted building codes.
