The Office of Community Development plays a vital role in creating and improving the quality of life for the community.  Looking for opportunities that create and enhance a safe, livable and vibrant community for residents, businesses and visitors provides the foundation for successful economic development.  A business-friendly environment is enhanced by the availability of good housing, resources for children and youth, opportunities for healthy living and physical activity, access to arts and culture, and other positive community assets.

By cultivating relationships with local, state and federal agencies to develop quality programs and support community health initiatives the Office of Community Development creates a place where people of all-ages can live, work, and thrive.
