Local community development efforts are led by the City's Planning Department, in association with a host of committed local non-profit, state and federal partners. Much of the community development work is accomplished with the help of CDBG and HOME funds from the Department of Housing and Urban Development.

The city's Community Development Committee makes budget recommendations to the City Commission and oversees activities in this area.
