The Community Development Department mission is to create a better community for American Canyon’s residents, workforce and visitors. With the help of our citizenry, we strive to enhance the character of American Canyon by delivering services, projects, and programs that enhance our economy for a beautiful, inclusive, safe, connected, and environmentally-focused quality of life.

The Community Development Department consists of three Divisions. The Building and Safety Division provides building permits, plan check, inspections and code enforcement. The Housing Division provides affordable housing assistance and monitoring. The Planning Division prepares long range land use plans, ordinances, and conducts development review, public outreach and environmental analysis.
