The department is responsible for planning and visioning for the future growth of Caldwell.
We work with the community and city officials to put in place land management policies. These policies direct future growth. Our goal is to create a city where the quality of life is second to none.
Planning for Growth
Caldwell is experiencing growth as people move to the area. Growth means increased development which changes how the city looks and stresses our resources. The focus is to look at how will the city accommodate these changes.
Preparing for Change
Studies and evaluation of plans show us how change is impacting the city. Planning and capacity studies go through the public process before they are adopted by the city council. Once adopted these studies become key to shaping future growth and development.
Provides plan review of development projects, this is accomplished through reasonable application of International Building Codes and the City of Caldwell Code of Ordinances.
