The Community Development Department is responsible for planning and zoning, building and safety and housing for the City of Coalinga. Our department works to ensure that new construction and additions to existing structures meet the policies and guidelines that have been established for public safety, zoning and development.
Community Development also works with the City Planning Commission who help guide and advise the City Council regarding growth in the city. Many projects that come before the city for review are presented to the Planning Commission or various committees for recommendations to the City Council. The Community Development Department is here to serve its community and protect the health, safety and welfare of its residents and visitors.
