Urban Development represents the merger of the City's Land Use and Code Administration Department with the Long Range Planning Section.

The strategic merger was undertaken in September of 1996 to better coordinate the services of the Long Range Planning Section and the Regulatory and Code Enforcement Sections.

In 1992, the Zoning Ordinance was amended to include landscaping, tree planting and protection requirements. The Tree Planting and Protection requirements were administered and enforced by the Urban Forestry Department. In 1997, Urban Forestry joined the Urban Development Department, further illustrating the City's commitment to efficiency and effectiveness.

Combining these sources allows the City to maximize its resources, improve services and implement focused and progressive planning.
