About Development Services
The Planning Department works with citizens and community leaders to build a consensus on how the City should live, work and grow. This is accomplished through the coordination of a variety of land planning functions that range from facilitating a vision for the future of Copperas Cove to reviewing all new development proposals to ensure compatibility to the City’s Comprehensive Plan.
Our mission is to provide solution-oriented customer services to the citizens we serve which will promote the implementation of sustainable plans; will facilitate economic growth; and will enhance our quality of life for the City of Copperas Cove.
Our vision is to be a fully integrated engaged team of professionals guided through the use of technology in creative and collaborative methods that will facilitate land use planning decisions and balance the need for economic growth combined with the stewardship of protecting City’s resources.
Our goal is to process and analyze project applications in a solution oriented “can-do” environment that is fair, efficient, timely, accurate, and provides friendly customer service, to accommodate development within the boundaries of the City’s policies, goals, and objectives.
