Community Development

In conjunction with the Planning Commission, Historic Commission, Parks and Recreation Board, and the Tree Advisory Board, Community Development improves the quality of life for Monmouth residents through the development of policies and programs reflecting current planning trends, legal requirements, and community needs. The Community Development Department helps develop and implement various community projects. The Department is also responsible for economic development, including marketing, tourism and local event planning. The Community Development Department provides a wide variety of services to help bring undeveloped and redevelopable land into better use.  The Department administers the City Comprehensive Plan, the Development Code, and the Zoning map.
