Property & Land


The Land Use Department will close at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, August 31 so staff can attend an off-site event. Onsite services, including building inspections, plan review and building permit-issuance, will not be available after 11 a.m. on August 31. We advise those who require building permit or land use planning services to visit the Land Use office before closing time, or on the days before or after the closure. The office will reopen at 8 a.m. Thursday, September 1. Thank you for your understanding, and we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
Due to ongoing flood recovery efforts, the Land Use Department is currently controlling the number of planning applications accepted to meet the resources we have available, and a waitlist for new planning applications is being managed. Once application packets are prepared following your pre-application conference, please contact the Land Use office to get on the waitlist or to check waitlist status.
