Planning Department - Bridget Bailey
Our planning department oversees all land divisions and development. Or, if someone has a large track of property and they'd like to develop it into a subdivision or other types of multifamily use apartments, if you will, then our office is where they would come to get the information on the proper way to do so. Planning department recently, as of last summer, is now also reviewing and handling and working in partnership with economic development. If there's a new business that wants to come into town and they want to build a new complex, then the planning office is where they would have to start. Main questions we get is individuals who are wanting some help with subdividing their property for family members. They're unsure how to navigate that legally and we give them assistance with that.
