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.

Ruth showed up at a very busy time for our department and quickly found her place with the team. She and her family moved to Central Arizona from Michigan in 2007, and she brings over 25 years of municipal planning experience.  Ruth joins forces with Town Manager, Tracie Hlavinka to form Clarkdale's Economic Development Team.
