The Community Development Department is responsible for the City’s Comprehensive Plan, zoning, land use activities, code enforcement, building inspections and permitting.  The Community Development department also serves as the liaison to economic development activities.

Planning and Zoning
Planning and Zoning activities are intended to protect, maintain, and develop a sustainable, attractive, safe, and healthy environment. Primary functions address property development and land use activities occurring in the City. This is done through implementation of the City's Zoning Ordinance and Comprehensive Plan.

The City’s Zoning Ordinance and Comprehensive Plan regulate how land may be used within the City. The Zoning Ordinance identifies allowable uses and sets standards such as minimum lot size, maximum building height, setbacks, and preservation buffers. The Comprehensive Plan dictates future land use based on community input. Each parcel in the City is assigned a zoning designation that describes the regulations under which that land may be used.

Code Enforcement
The goal of Code Enforcement is to preserve the quality and value of public and private property and maintain a high standard of living by eliminating conditions that threaten the life, health, safety and general welfare of the public.

The City recognizes that this goal is most effectively achieved through the education of, and cooperation with, the citizens of Chattahoochee Hills. Our code enforcement program will always give priority to compliance within a reasonable time frame; however, cases not brought into compliance are processed through the city’s municipal court system.

The City's adopted property maintenance standards for both residential and commercial structures is the 2018 International Property Maintenance Code.
