The Community Development Department serves to work with community partners to further develop and grow our fine City. This department consists of the building division and civil engineering division, and is contracted by the City to Charles Abbott Associates, Inc. to perform all related functions for both of these divisions. The engineering division works with new and existing projects from the conceptual stage to completion for all civil projects within City limits. The building division services all permitting, plan reviews, and inspections for all stages of any project within the City limits. All zoning matters for projects within the City limits will still be handled by Butts County.
