Planning and Zoning Services will join Building Safety at the Development Services & Infrastructure Center on February 18
On Tuesday, February 18, Rochester’s one-stop development services experience will be another step closer to becoming a reality as planning and zoning services join the city’s Building Safety teammates in the new Development Services & Infrastructure Center at 4001 West River Parkway NW.
In alignment with the City’s Vision to be a vibrant, compassionate, innovative team, the establishment of the Community Development Department in July 2019 was the first phase in the city’s longer-term plan for Development Services & Infrastructure (DSI), which will bring together three departments under a single roof to better serve those seeking to build, develop, and invest in Rochester.
Building Safety was the first city department to move into the newly renovated DSI Center in January. Next week, planning and zoning services – which is part of the Community Development Department – will join them. By late spring, Public Works and the remaining Community Development teammates will also relocate to the new facility concluding the co-location process, which will allow the city to be more intentional and strategic in achieving the vision to become America’s most innovative development services team.
Friday, February 14 will be the last day any applications or permit requests will be processed in the City Hall location. As of Tuesday, February 18, ALL requests will need to be submitted at the Development Services & Infrastructure Center.
