Community Development is always a work in progress. Several things go into developing a community such as building, code enforcement, and planning / development. We strive to maintain a professional and friendly manner to enhance and protect the quality of life, sense of community, well-being and prosperity of the city’s residents, businesses and visitors.
In addition, we ensure construction and development activities comply with the following:
- Latest building codes
- City’s Land Development Code, and
- City’s Comprehensive Plan
- All the while maintaining enforcement of city ordinances and regulations
We work hand in hand with Benton county and we are committed to making our community an even better place for its residents to live and enjoy life. By funding community and economic development projects, we strive to honor our past, celebrate today and plan for our future. As our population grows, we are committed to holding fast to the small town values that makes the City of Decatur such a special place to live, work and visit.
