Planning Division

The Community and Economic Development Department’s Planning Division implements and administers the policy direction of the City Council and the needs of the community with regard to the City’s built environment, including its development and growth. The Planning Division provides the public with information about property regulations and is responsible for developing long-range planning policies and plans, evaluating development projects, implementing housing programs, and assisting with the Concord Reuse Project.
