The Planning and Neighborhood Resources Division is responsible for developing and updating the city’s comprehensive plan and its various elements; for implementing the comprehensive plan through the review of development and rezoning applications and through the writing, updating, and implementing of land use regulations, including zoning; and for providing neighborhood services that link neighbors to resources and conflict resolution.
