We are excited to announce the launch of enCodePlus; a unique internet-based document editing and presentation system used for authoring, displaying, and management all aspects of our land development regulations, zoning ordinance, or entire municipal code. Take a moment to check out our enhanced electronic Planning and Development Codes. 

The Department of Urban Planning and Land Use is responsible for promoting the long-term value and livability of the community by administering land use and development ordinances, implementation of the City-Wide Master Plan, advising on planning issues, preparation of plans and policies, and provision of technical assistance and planning information to government agencies, public officials, and community boards. 

The Department is responsible for land use analysis in support of the Commission's review of proposals for zoning map and text amendments; special permits under the Zoning Resolution; changes in the City Map; the acquisition and disposition of city-owned property; the acquisition of office space for city use; site selection for public facilities; urban renewal plans and amendments; landmark and historic district designations; and community-initiated plans under the City Charter.
