Welcome to the Development Services Department. We take pride in overseeing and fostering development activity in our community, ensuring that growth is sustainable, responsible, and in harmony with our natural surroundings. The Development Services Department focuses on two key pillars: Economic Development and Planning & Zoning. Our dedicated team works to strike a balance between progress and preservation, with a focus on minimizing the impact of development on our open spaces and environmentally-sensitive areas.

Economic Development
We focus our economic development efforts on supporting existing businesses to ensure their long-term growth and success, assisting entrepreneurs and business start-ups, and attracting new businesses that create job opportunities while providing much-needed goods and services. Our goal is a thriving economy that sustains our community while fostering progress and prosperity.

Planning & Zoning
Our Planning & Zoning Division plays a vital role in shaping the physical character of Plain City. With careful consideration, we design and implement land-use and building regulations to ensure orderly development, and work directly with residents, developers, and businesses to ensure that Plain City develops in a smart and sustainable fashion.

We invite you to explore the resources and information provided here as we continue our commitment to making Plain City an exceptional place to live, work, and thrive.
