The Community Development Division serves the public through the formulation and implementation of the County General Plan and related policies and programs which guide future land use, development, and the management and conservation of resources. Our work recognizes that land use planning and the provision of infrastructure have social, environmental, and economic impacts on the entire fabric of a community.
We are dedicated to:
Providing balanced short- and long-term development and redevelopment of the County within the regional setting
Conserving and enhancing the physical, environmental, social, and economic resources of the County and region
Balancing a multitude of diverse public and private interests and community visions
Encouraging public participation in planning activities
Facilitating decision-making and solutions by providing both accurate and timely information through objective and thorough analysis
Collaborating with residents, other agencies, civic, and business groups to promote self-sustaining communities and foster economic opportunities
