Community Development

The Department of Community Development (DCD) has a pivotal role in managing and protecting the County’s resources (land, water, minerals), environment and quality of life. The Department assists the Board of County Commissioners with recommendations to ensure that the County grows in a manner that is fiscally sound and economically beneficial to the County and its taxpayers and businesses. Meeting both responsibilities in a growing environment presents considerable challenges and opportunities.

DCD consists of Parks, Trails and Building Grounds, Community Service and Resources, Economic Development, Historic Preservation, Planning Services, Water and Zoning.
