It provides professional administrative staff to the Planning Commission, Zoning Board of Appeals and Design Review Board. Administrative duties include preparation of agendas, coordination of reviews and public notification. Additional staff duties are site development inspection, review of construction permits for zoning ordinance compliance, site plan review, design and sign review and processing of all rezoning and lot split requests.

Zoning Board of Appeals, Site Plan Review and Design Review Board applications are all filed with the Planning Division.  Applications for Lot Splits and Rezoning Requests are also submitted initially to the Planning Division.
