Planning & Development
The mission of the Pasco County Planning and Development Department (PDD) is to guide the County's current and future physical growth through the establishment of a long-term vision, and the implementation and on-going enforcement of its existing development regulations.

Planning and Development shares the County's Strategic Plan goals and strives to: Create a Thriving Community; Enhance Pasco's Quality of Life; and Stimulate Economic Growth.

PDD includes five divisions: Code Compliance; Current Planning; Long Range Planning; the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO); and Zoning and Intake. While each of these divisions has a unique focus, it is the cooperative effort among the divisions that defines the Planning and Development Department's success.

PDD Divisions
  • Code Compliance oversees enforcement of the County's Code of Ordinances and Land Development Code.
  • Current Planning oversees site development and the review and processing of Developments of Regional Impact (DRIs) and Master Planned Unit Developments (MPUDs).
  • Long Range Planning guides the County's long term vision through the Comprehensive Plan.
