Building a Better Community Today for Tomorrow
The Community Development Department consists of four divisions. The Building Division has the responsibility for providing services to the building community. The Planning & Zoning Division has the responsibility of providing land use and development services. The Economic Development Division provides assistance to businesses getting started, expanding, or relocating to Payson. The Housing Division has the responsibility for our housing rehab and affordable/workforce housing programs. Town Business Licenses & Dog Licenses are also handled by this department.
The main goal of the Community Development Department is to assist with the building of a safe, attractive community with a vibrant economic component.
