Land Development

The Department of Development Services strives to make the process for Land Development as fluid and efficient as possible for developers and investors alike. We encourage any developers and/or investors of prospective developments to consult the Land Development Guide and contact our office to set up a pre-application meeting, during which we can more accurately guide you through the process.

For first time and even experienced developer's we suggest reading our Developer's Handbook, which outlines the process for most scenarios you may encounter throughout the review and construction process.
