Community Development Administration

City Hall Annex at 344 Broadway

CDD’s Administration Division provides leadership and policy direction, as well as financial and operational support to the department.  The Division consists of general management, fiscal and grant program management, and clerical functions.  The Administration staff works in conjunction with other City departments and state and federal agencies, overseeing resources that not only provide direct funding for department activity but also leverage the acquisition of additional funding to maximize service delivery and infrastructure improvement through CDD.

Consistent with the City’s commitment to provide a high level of service with an awareness of the impact on taxpayers, the Administration Division ensures that the department adopts best professional practices and new technologies to add value to its initiatives. The Division provides professional development opportunities to support staff retention and professional growth, and promotes diversity in the department‘s workforce through its hiring, staff evaluation and training activities.

The Administration Division works to integrate the goals and work plans for the entire department in order to optimize operational efficiency and enhance the productivity of both internal and public meetings.  At the same time the Division has prioritized the broadening of department-wide outreach to better engage the community and provide accessible, timely information about CDD programs and projects.
