The Community Development Department is responsible for working with the citizens of Canton, Boards and Commissions, the development community and the elected officials while managing current and long-range planning, land development, building construction, and code compliance. The City of Canton believes that everyone interested in, or affected by, an issue should have equal access to the planning and development process. Participate by attending meetings, including those scheduled regularly at City Hall and special community meetings, or by providing a comment on proposed development projects.
