Planning & Development Information

Laurie Cordell

Planning Department Manager

The Planning & Development Services Department is responsible for Long Range and Current Planning, Building Inspection Services and Business Licensing. Long Range Planning typically involves policy development to guide future land-use within the City such as the Official Community Plan (OCP). Current Planning involves processing applications to change land-use or develop land that meets existing permitted land-uses such as OCP Amendments, Zoning Amendments, Subdivisions, Development Permits, Development Variance Permits and Temporary Use Permits.

The City of Armstrong Planning and Development department consists of a planner, two building inspectors and a clerk. 

The City of Armstrong accepts all building inquiries directly related to properties within the boundaries; building permits will be issued by the City.  

A comprehensive application package with information sheets is available for download as well as each individual form and info sheet available for download.

All City maps are located here.
