Community Planning & Development

The Community Planning & Development (CPD) department reviews all permits for land use and private development. 

CPD is responsible for:
  • Long range and comprehensive planning
  • Land Use policy advice to the Planning Commission and City Council
  • Land Use permits
  • Development permits and inspections
  • Tree permits and inspections
CPD is committed to preserving the unique island environment while encouraging sensitive and quality development. 
 

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, Community Planning and Development has modified its operations.  For more information and updates, please visit the COVID-19 website.

City Hall and the Permit Center are closed to the public and Community Planning and Development staff are now telecommuting. There is no “walk in” permit service.  We encourage permit customers to contact staff directly via their office number - phone lines are set up to forward calls to staff.  In-person Over-the-Counter Permit services have been suspended; for more information about Over-the-Counter Permit Services click here. Please contact us by phone or email for general customer support at  206-275-7626 or epermittech@mercergov.org.
