This Department provides professional support through long-range special studies and recommendations on development proposals to the City Manager and the City Council. Staff also review development proposals, departures, and variances. Featured development projects can be found here.

A more recent focus of the department is the environment - preserving and protecting it through the City's Green Bowie initiatives led by the City's Sustainability Manager and Watershed Manager. Click the Sustainability tab below to learn more about these initiatives.

A growing focus is transportation-related efforts including trails, mass transit, complete streets, biking, and more. The Transportation Specialist is the lead on these efforts, and more information is available on the Transportation tab below.
