About the Department
The Community Development Department is composed of the following divisions:
- Building & Safety
- Business Licenses
- Housing & Grants
While each are functionally different, their integration is essential to the development, maintenance, and future of Citrus Heights.
The Community Development Department works collaboratively with other city departments to provide a variety of city services.
Building & Safety Division
The Building and Safety Division is responsible for reviewing plans, issuing building permits, and doing field inspections of buildings to ensure compliance with local and state mandated regulations related to building construction, maintenance, rehabilitation, and accessibility.
Business License Division
The Business License Division is responsible for regulating business activities that occur within the city limits. The license promotes enforcement of city ordinances that protect the public and prevent nuisances and neighborhood disturbances.
Housing & Grants Division
The Housing and Grants Division administers the Federal Community Development Block Grant Program, coordinates the city's housing efforts, as well as seeks and administers other grant programs for the city.
The Planning Division serves as an information center to assist citizens and the development community in understanding and applying Citrus Heights development policies in accordance with the General Plan and the Zoning Code. The division also serves as the primary staff support for the Planning Commission.
