Planning and Development Review guides building and development in the city of Richmond.  The
department oversees building and trades permitting and inspections, compliance with the property
maintenance code, current and long-range planning, enforcement of the Zoning Ordinance, and
historic preservation.

In the facilitation of these duties, the department supports a number of boards and commissions.





The City of Richmond reached an agreement with the U.S. Department of
Housing and Urban Development (HUD), in response to complaints filed against
the City by mobile home park residents. The agreement addresses assertions
that Richmond unfairly targeted Latino-occupied mobile home communities for
maintenance code enforcement and that the City did not offer sufficient
interpretation or translation services. You may view a copy of the agreement
through the links below.
