The Planning Division staff consists of City employees that are committed to providing the highest degree of professionalism in the performance of their duties. Most planning applications are processed on an actual cost basis, with staff time billed against an initial deposit. However, requests for information are always welcome, and depending on the nature of the request, they can be handled immediately at the public service counter or by scheduling an appointment with a staff member.
