Community Development


The Community Development Department includes five divisions: Planning; Public Works/Engineering; Building & Safety; Economic Development/Redevelopment; and Field Services.


The goal of our Department is to provide exceptional customer service; to improve our community through controlled growth and quality development; and to provide first rate maintenance of the City's streets and public infrastructure.


There is a reason that the Los Angeles County Economic Development Corporation (LAEDC) has selected the City of Duarte as a finalist for Most Business Friendly City for the past two years.  Our Department and all City staff desire to be accessible and helpful to our residents and business community and to do our best to make Duarte a better place to live and conduct business.


In an effort to best serve the public, we have arranged our Department website into pages that address the services that each of our Divisions provide.  We invite you to visit these pages to gain more information or to contact the Community Development Department at 626-357-7931.
