Community Development

INOVA shot for community development

There are two divisions in Community Development: Current Planning and Long Range Planning.

We ensure development in the City occurs in an orderly, safe and attractive manner. Our goal is protecting the economic and physical vibrancy expected by our community.

We are responsible for the entire development review process, which includes:

  • Annexations
  • Building and Inspections
  • Engineering
  • Plats
  • Site planning
  • Zoning

Our staff works with applicants, citizen groups and referral agencies. We help them keep projects in compliance with City plans and regulations.

  • Apply for land use projects and upload plans for review
  • Check the status of projects
  • Pay plan review and inspection fees - accepted payment options include e-check or credit/debit card (includes 3 percent processing fee)
  • Schedule site inspections and view inspection results
  • View important calendar deadlines and public meeting dates for projects

The LDC is the primary set of development and zoning regulations for the City of Centennial.

1041 regulations provide local governments the opportunity to name and regulate matters happening within their jurisdiction that have statewide and local impacts. The statutes regarding 1041 powers are also referred to as the Areas and Activities of State Interest Act (AASIA). The AASIA allows local government to regulate activities of state interest through a local designation and permitting process.

The City has adopted a number of long-range planning studies to guide the growth and development of the City.
