Community Development

Community Development actions work to improve the quality-of-life of residents through the planning and development of municipal infrastructure and public amenities. It includes the administration of community and economic development programs with a public participation component such as transit-oriented redevelopment, corridor studies, and building and property re-use as well as grant and program management related to various projects such as streetscape improvements, and historic and cultural resource preservation.

Federally-funded public service programs administered by City departments and local non-profits such as the Community Development Block Grant Program provide needed services to the City's lower-income residents in an effort to create a suitable living environment throughout the community.
