Our Vision

Building a better tomorrow, starting today

Our Mission

Enhance the City’s position as the business, financial and cultural heart of West Pasco County, by ensuring the safe conditions of existing buildings, making sure new developments are aesthetically pleasing, functionally relevant, and enhancing the residential and commercial core of the city.


The Development Department coordinates the approval processes for building, planning, zoning, and redevelopment activities in the city. The department ensures that existing properties and newly constructed buildings meet all applicable codes and regulations. It also provides comprehensive planning services and zoning information.

Fold Your Plans Like a Pro!

Why does the Development Department ask that you fold your development plans this way? A properly folded plan 1) makes the title block visible without having to open the entire sheet, 2) is easier to open and close, and 3) fits in standard size file folder.  Take a look at this video and see how you can “fold like a pro”.
