Sign up for quarterly updates from the Community Development Department!
The Community Development Department is responsible for managing the City's urban environment and creating a livable community that balances the needs of residents, businesses, property owners and visitors. There are three divisions within the Department that assist in creating and implementing the community vision: 1) Current and Historic Preservation Planning, 2) Long Range and Mobility Planning, and 3) Building and Safety. The Department also serves as a leader in coordinating and focusing multi-departmental work efforts to address the wide number of planning and development issues that West Hollywood confronts on a daily basis.
Our Interim Director of Community Development is John Keho.
