We understand the importance of Economic Development and offer assistance in this area as well. Our team is ready to provide resources, guidance, and support to foster business growth, attract investments, and create job opportunities within our community.

Lastly, our Geographic Information System (GIS) services provide valuable mapping and spatial analysis tools to support various city initiatives and decision-making processes.

As of 08/01/2022, Development Services will be closed during the hours of 12pm to 1pm.  Plans and applications for permits may be dropped off at the main front desk of City Hall and will be processed after 1pm.  Please ensure you leave good contact information so any questions, concerns, and payments of any fees may be addressed once the office is back open.  


Our offices have been established in the east building at City Hall.  We are located in the annex, just east of the main City Hall building at 2500 N. Choctaw Road.  Drive around the main building to the back, and you may park there to enter the double doors for any of the services we provide, including Garage Sale permits.  Please park in a space or area so as not to impede other traffic or block any doors.  All phone numbers and emails are the same.  



We coordinate consultant and contractor agreements and provide quality construction management services. In addition, we maintain working relationships with regulatory agencies, other municipalities and utility companies to ensure effective communication and coordination on joint projects and issues of mutual interest.
