Planning & Zoning
The Planning and Community Development Department consists of the Planning Department, the Building Department, and the Economic Development Department. Together, they provide a one-step convenient service to residents, businesses, and contractors.
The Planning Department provides assistance to businesses and residents requesting information related to zoning and development issues. The Department assists applicants through Medina's approval process including submittals to the Planning Commission, Historic Preservation Board, and the Board of Zoning Appeals. Additionally, we monitor the continued compliance of the established development regulations.
The Planning Department administers the City's Comprehensive Plan and special planning studies. They also coordinate the City's Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program, the Community Housing Improvement Program, (CHIP) and other housing and neighborhood related programs.
