Note: While Village Hall is now open 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. weekdays, we ask that you try to do as much business online or by phone as possible due to the continuing COVID-19 pandemic. Some staff are working remote but all services are being provided.
The Development Center is located at the front counter within the Community Development Department. The Development Center is the first point of customer contact for all Community Development-related services. Our goal is to create a welcoming environment by effectively and efficiently providing the highest level of customer service through increased access to staff, establishment of clear expectations, and simplifying development processes.
The Development Center staff will respond to walk-in, email, and phone inquiries related to planning, engineering, building permits, inspections, capital project improvements, and complaints. Customers will also be able to submit permit applications, have simple permits issued over-the-counter, obtain a small/medium sized permit through our same day review (SDR) process, submit large sized permits through the traditional plan review process, schedule building and engineering inspections, and/or receive technical and administrative assistance.
