Public Works & Development Services

Welcome to the Community Development Department. Our primary goal is to provide you with quality and expeditious service. The Community Development Department addresses the issues of planning, zoning, building, permitting, business tax, economic development, and implementation of the Community Redevelopment Agency Plan. If you have comments about current services or improvements you would like to see in the future, please contact us.

Department Changes
Please note: To serve you better, the Community Development Department has relocated to 3521 NW 43rd Avenue in City Hall Municipal Complex. As part of the move, while our hours will remain the same, our phone numbers have changed. Please make note of our new telephones numbers, which have been updated throughout the Community Development web pages.

Also, in an effort to continue providing you with quality service, the City has found it necessary to make a modest revision to its Building and Planning and Zoning Fee Schedules. As such, pursuant to ordinances No. 2011-05 and No. 2011-06, staff will begin assessing fees in compliance with the newly adopted fee schedules beginning Tuesday, July 5, 2011.

For your convenience, a copy of the newly adopted fee schedules has been posted on the city’s website at the Building Services and Planning and Zoning Divisions’ homepage. Please call 954-676-3660 should you have any questions or concerns regarding the new fees.

Best Wishes
Danny A. Holmes, AICP
