Development Services (formerly Inspectional Services)
The Division of Development Services exists to provide a one-stop center for land-use, permitting and code enforcement activities in the City. We are committed to protecting and preserving public safety, security and quiet enjoyment of the residents through the review and enforcement of building and sanitary codes, and the evaluation of land-development and use proposals for adherence to the goals and objectives of the City's Master Plan and Zoning Code.

Did You Know?
We generate a report of all the permits applied for through Development Services. The report includes addresses, contractor info, project types, status of permit, status of inspections and other useful information. Reports are run monthly and are a snap shot of the current status of each application.
Generally this report is available at the Development Services Permit Counter on the second floor of City Hall. To improve customer service and broaden access to the information, the Counter Report is now available on our website. Click here for the latest report.
