Planning & Zoning

The Community Development Department consists of the Planning Department, the Building Department, and the Economic Development Department. Together, they provide a one-step convenient service to residents, businesses, and contractors.

The Planning Department provides assistance to businesses and residents requesting information related to zoning and development issues. The Department assists applicants through Medina's approval process including submittals to the Planning Commission, Historic Preservation Board, and the Board of Zoning Appeals. Additionally, we monitor the continued compliance of the established development regulations.

The Planning Department administers the City's Comprehensive Plan and special planning studies. They also coordinate the City's Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program, the Community Housing Improvement Program, (CHIP) and other housing and neighborhood related programs.


City of Medina Comprehensive Plan Update

The City is currently progressing through an update of our Comprehensive Plan.  The plan is a community blueprint which aims to build upon the City’s previous planning documents and public involvement to design a 10-20 year guide for future development. This guide will serve as a vision for future development and re-development to best position the City of Medina.
