Anytime you need further clarification or if additional confirmation regarding your zoning matter is necessary, feel free to ask for a “Second Opinion.” While we are legally responsible to apply the zoning code, development regulations and policies to foster quality development, Planning and Building staff, want to ensure complete and clear information has been given to minimize any confusion. Our commitment is one of open communication designed to ensure the highest quality of entitlement processing, plan checking, code interpretation, and neighborhood preservation.
