WHAT IS THE COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT DEPARTMENT?
The Community Development Department (CDD) provides a wide variety of development services to the community. Development functions are divided into three divisions: Planning, Building, and Redevelopment (Affordable Housing). These three divisions play an integral role in helping to guide and shape the physical development of Grass Valley. The Community Development Department is located in City Hall of the City of Grass Valley at 125 E. Main Street. The Department is open Monday through Thursday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. City Hall is currently closed on Fridays. The phone number for the Department is (530) 274-4330.
Planning Division The Planning Division provides information on land use, zoning and development standards and processes applications for land use permits and land divisions. The Planning Division also performs long-range planning activities, including the implementation of the City 2020 General Plan.
Building Division The Building Division reviews building permit applications for compliance with state and local building codes (structural, electrical, mechanical, plumbing and energy efficiency) and provides inspection services for all building-related construction. The Building Division also administers the City's Code Enforcement program.
Redevelopment (Affordable Housing) The Redevelopment Agency works toward enhancing the economic vitality of the community as well as removing blighted conditions within the City. The Agency works with the community in the preservation and construction of affordable housing.
