The Community Development Department deals with planning, permitting, zoning, sustainability, and development issues. Our team works closely with the Planning Commission, Design Review Board, and the Board of Adjustment to answer questions about zoning, permitted uses, conditional use permits, zoning changes, planned area developments, planned unit developments, variances, parking standards, landscaping standards, signage, subdivisions, and other related planning issues.
The team also works with the business community through the annual business license program and through marketing the Town to a wide array of digital and print media outlets.
The Building Division handles permit applications, inspections and code enforcement. The Town recently adopted the 2018 ICC Building Codes and 2017 National Electric Code (NEC) for plan review and inspections.

Within 90 minutes of Phoenix and 20 minutes of Sedona, Clarkdale features access to big city amenities nestled in some of the most beautiful country in America.

Clarkdale respects its location in this arid desert region, so naturally, matters relating to water use and conservation top the Town of Clarkdale's priority list. Stroll through Centennial Plaza and take in the water harvesting contours and native, drought-tolerant species. Know that rainwater is harvested from the roof of the Clark Memorial Clubhouse and is stored in sub-grade cisterns totaling 5,100 gallons.
