The City Planning Department is charged with the responsibility of carrying out the City’s planning function including the preparation and updating of the City’s Comprehensive Master Plan. The Department also administers some Ordinances implementing the adopted Plan.
These implementation mechanisms include The Access Management Policies and Guidelines, the Subdivision Regulations, and the Zoning Code. Additionally, the Department has oversight of the contract with the Wood County Health Department for the Housing Code.
There are two (2) documents that pertain to all residents, both owners and renters, that you should familiarize yourself with. They are the City Snow Removal Brochure and an informational letter regarding the posting of addresses on your home or apartment as well as places of business.
