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.
Historic Preservation Brochure
In cooperation with Main Street Medina and the Community Design Committee, the City of Median Community Development Department has worked to create a brochure to guide exterior change and development in the City's Public Square Historic District and designated historic properties. The brochure, accessible by the link below, outlines historic properties in Medina, the process for review of exterior changes, Community Reinvestment Area incentives, and provides numerous useful contacts.
