The Development Review Division (DRD) is responsible for assisting customers to comply with the Zoning Ordinance and Subdivision Regulations through a managed review process. While development is viewed as the economic engine of the County, protecting the integrity of neighborhoods is equally important. The Development Review Division encourages growth in a way that is sensitive to the needs and values of neighborhoods. Our goal is to help you to understand and meet the requirements that apply to your project as promptly as possible. We are proud of our staff and confident they will make every effort to assist you.

The Development Review Division consists of several sections.
