About the Department
The Community Services Department is dedicated to providing responsive and courteous service to the public using creative and innovative approaches. The department's mission is accomplished through its ongoing commitment to excellent service and effective communication, involving the community in the development of procedures and processes. The department's ability to serve the community effectively is enhanced by regular inter and intra-departmental communication, along with staff participation in opportunities for training and education.
The Planning and Building Division is responsible for implementing and maintaining the general plan, and developing and maintaining long and short range planning objectives through proper application of the zoning ordinance. This is achieved by addressing important land use, circulation, environmental, and other issues pertaining to Greenfield and its sphere of influence in a timely and effective manner; and including and involving citizens in the planning process and making the City's policies and procedures available and understandable. Building inspection services are currently provided by MNS Engineering Inc. through a professional service contract.
