South Beach Bike Path Newport's Community Development Department is responsible for administration of the city’s land use planning and urban renewal programs, with an emphasis on providing clear, courteous, and consistent service to the Council, Planning Commission, and public.  This includes implementation of land use policies and laws and adopted economic development strategies.  Active citizen participation in all aspects of planning is encouraged.
