Community Development Department - Temporary Location

The Community Development Department has temporarily relocated to the Sinagua Building (just east of City Hall) during construction to repair flood damage from a water line break in June. There is parking in front of the Sinagua Building (see map below).


The city is updating its Land Development Code (LDC) which contains the rules for development and re-development within the city. The city has contracted with the consulting team, Clarion Associates, to overhaul the 20-year-old code.
