A message from Pete Wysocki - Director of Planning and Development
Greetings. 2020 was quite a year. Since most of us have had more than our fill of Covid-19 references, I will simply say I have been very impressed with the ingenuity, perseverance, resiliency and hard work of our Community during these difficult and frankly, uncertain times. In 2020, the Planning and Community Development staff stepped up to support our City with continuous adaptation. They performed well in an environment jam packed with a high development review caseload and many permit applications. We supported a record numbers of new affordable housing units, processed and mostly resolved code enforcement complaints, cleaned up more homeless camps than ever before, and made progress on numerous Departmental programs and initiatives important to our City, our businesses and our residents. I invite you to read on to get a flavor for the work we accomplished in 2020, and I look forward to continuing in 2021 and beyond. Our City is transforming is many exciting ways.
- Peter Wysocki, AICP, Planning and Community Development Director
