Community Development
The Community Development Department leads the City by planning for the future of the community. Guided by the City of River Falls’ Comprehensive Plan, the community planning program includes short and long range planning, land use regulations, annexations, transportation system and downtown plans, that together formulate the future of the City. The Comprehensive Plan also forms the framework for the City’s zoning and subdivision ordinances. Plans and ordinances are reviewed and acted upon by the City Plan Commission, then are approved by the Common Council. Implementation is then the responsibility of the Community Development Department.

The Department also serves the community through:

  • Building & Inspections
  • Parks & Recreation
  • Economic Development
  • Historic Preservation
Community Development Department Mission Statement
