Planning & Development

What is Planning and Development?
Planning and Development reviews applications for development, sets long term goals for the community, and coordinates with other City departments to ensure that decisions regarding development are aligned with the City’s land use policies and goals. Planning is also responsible for administering the Zoning Code and Subdivision Ordinances, promoting urban design principles, and managing the City’s historic resources. 

Our Goals
Our goal is to make all of Sanford a better place to live; to maintain what works, and improve what doesn’t.

How Do We Serve You?
As the needs of the diverse Sanford population continue to evolve, the Planning and Development Department is committed to partnering with the community to ensure that our city is the best that it can be.

Lots of things! Check out the Upcoming & Ongoing Projects page to learn more.
