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.


The Department is also responsible for the development and administration of the city’s building program.  It is our goal to provide clear, courteous, and consistent service to the public on building code questions; update ordinances as needed to comply with state and city building codes; collect and update system development charges and related building fees in accordance with established policies; review construction plans for code compliance; and perform inspections for construction projects in a timely manner.
