The Planning and Development Department is responsible for the current and future physical development of the City. Using O'Fallon's Municipal Code and the 2015 Update to the City's Comprehensive Plan, which was originally completed in 2008, staff, with the assistance of the the Planning and Zoning Commission, Board of Adjustment and City Council, implements planning goals and principles to create a community that offers better choices for where and how our citizens live.

Draft of new Comprehensive Plan available for review and comment

The City of O'Fallon is in the process of updating the City's Comprehensive Plan. This plan helps lay out a long-term guide for the City's Planning and Zoning Commission, developers and our elected officials as the City grows and continues to develop. The draft plan is now available for public comment. It also will be shared with both the Planning and Zoning Commission and the City Council at a joint meeting on Thursday, May 27th at 5:30 p.m. Residents are encouraged to review the document and provide any comments via email to Tracy Coffman, Planning and Zoning Assistant, no later than May 28th.

Planning staff's responsibilities include the review of all land development plans, as well as issues relating to the City's zoning and other land use ordinances. The Department also has personnel involved in the creation and maintenance of the City's GIS-based computer mapping programs. The GIS Division also provides support to other departments.
