IMPORTANT NOTICE: Processing Delay due to Software Upgrade

In the coming weeks we will be transitioning to our new permitting software. This new technology will deliver the system modernization the city needs to help streamline our processes by integrating operations into one location while expanding self-service capabilities. During this transition, staff will be temporarily entering applications in multiple programs. As a result, you may notice a longer than normal wait time. Providing excellent customer service will remain our top priority during this transition. We appreciate your patience and understanding and encourage you to contact our staff with any questions. 

  • If your permit number resembles any of the following: BLD-19-01362, ENG-19-01428, FDP-19-01556 or PLZ-19-01219, please use the SmartGov portal. If your permit number resembles any of the following: BLDR-19-10000, ENG-19-10000, ENGROW-19-10000, FDPR-19-10000 or PLZP-19-10000, please use the EnerGov portal.
  • To request an inspection through our new Citizen Self Service portal, you must first register to create an account. For assistance, please contact the Development Services Permit Center at 623-349-6200. We are committed to providing the best service possible, but due to the high volume of inspection requests, we are unable to accommodate AM or PM specific requests. We appreciate your patience during this time of transition.

The main purpose of the Planning & Zoning Division is to project manage all development proposals made to the city to assure that they are consistent with the community's vision and policies as identified in the city's General Plan and the city's adopted regulations as identified in the city's Development Code. Planning staff collaborates with other departments to ensure that each proposal meets all applicable regulations and facilities the comprehensive process from preliminary and technical meetings through to administrative, Planning and Zoning Commission, and City Council decision. Planning staff also provides front counter customer service on planning and zoning information, zoning plan review on building and landscape permits as well as planning representation on a variety of special projects such as the Land Use Policy projects, Capital Improvement projects, Economic Development projects, Development Code updates, CDBG management, and Transit planning.
