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