Community Development

The Department of Community Development has the overall responsibility of assuring the proper planning and development of high quality residential and business neighborhoods, as well as designing the transportation system to serve them. The department provides "one-stop-shopping" for residents and businesses by consolidating project review, permit and inspection functions within one city department. Our overall mission is to continue to improve the quality of life, transportation system and employment opportunities for Westminster citizens.
