Planning & Community Development

Your One-Stop-Shop

The Planning & Community Development Department is your “one-stop” shop for information for the following processes: building permits, building inspections, planning and zoning administration and business license. The Planning & Community Development Department was created by City Charter to serve the public in the development, maintenance and redevelopment of properties located in the municipal limits of the City of East Point, Georgia. 

The Planning & Community Development Department consists of four distinct, yet interrelated divisions: Permits, Building Inspections, Planning and Business License. The four divisions are managed by the Director of Planning & Community Development; Permits Manager (Permit Office); and Chief Building Official (Inspections). The Permits Manager and Chief Building Official report to the department’s Director.
