Community planning includes social, youth and senior housing initiatives. Transportation includes planning and design for all modes of transportation, and on-street parking. Environment includes corporate and community climate protection and resilience, development of environmental policies and programs, zero waste planning and outreach initiatives. The City’s Official Community Plan is coordinated by this department.
