Planning & Development Services Department

Planning and Development Services (P&DS) coordinates all of the development-related functions across the city's Planning and Public Works departments.

The newly formed Planning & Development Services Department will merge the functions of the former Planning Department and Public Works Development Services Division.

In November 2020, the city welcomed Jacob Lindsey as the new Planning & Development Services Department Director. Jacob provides vision and leadership to the P&DS department, and continues the cultural work started as part of the P&DS Strategic Plan, keeping the department moving toward its objective of operational excellence.
