**9/20/22 Update** In early August the Mayor and City Council requested an item be placed on the September Strategic City Council agenda to discuss currently approved Residential Development projects due to the number of questions and comments being received from the Community. At the September 13, 2022 Strategic City Council meeting, the Planning and Development Director gave a presentation outlining the historic of residential growth, the residential development approval process, a summary of residential development approvals, and introduced the new interactive develop map. You can find a copy of the presentation HERE or you may view the presentation on the City's YouTube page HERE

The new map and project pages, which are still under construction, can be found under the Planning subpage on the left side of the page.
