Welcome to the Planning & Community Development Department. Feel free to send us your comments and suggestions concerning our web pages.

Planning & Community Development can be broken down into the five (5) divisions listed below. In addition to traditional comprehensive planning, zoning and code enforcement activities; the department also manages a successful housing rehabilitation program through community development funds; is responsible for managing the geographic information system (GIS); and serves as the lead transportation agency for the Burlington-Graham Metropolitan Planning Organization.  This department will also be the home of Burlington's new transit service, projected to start in spring/summer 2016.
