The Development Review Office is a division within the Department of Planning and Development. The Development Review Office is responsible for assisting customers to comply with the Zoning Ordinance and Subdivision Regulations through a managed review process. The Development Review Office is responsible for staffing and supporting three City Council appointed boards or commissions. These boards and commissions include the Planning and Zoning Commission for development review applications, the Board of Adjustment for code interpretations and variances and the Landmarks Board which reviews applications for historic properties.
