Department of Doing
Yes, the name of our department is different, some might say, unusual. We are okay with that, because the name was given to us by a citizen committee that used design thinking to envision how Planning and Building could really serve the needs of our citizens.
By focusing on the needs of citizens, not staff or regulatory documents, we are making others successful. Our two divisions are re-examining everything we do to create a seamless experience for our citizens. Our team of teams approach facilitates a cooperative approach to helping citizens start or grow a business, build a home, or engage with their community.
