Planning and Zoning Administration

What Can We Do For You?

The Planning and Zoning Administration unit works with residents, businesses, and community leaders to shape the urban development of the city. The Planning and Zoning Administration unit is responsible for implementing and updating Riverdale’s Comprehensive Plan.

Before setting up your business in the city, we encourage applicants to review the Use Table and Zoning Map to make sure their proposed use is permitted.

Comprehensive Plan 2023 Update

It's finally that time! We are updating our comprehensive plan to better fit the current (and future) needs of the community. This means we need as much feedback from you- the Riverdale Community- as possible to make sure these updates fit our goals. Time to let us know what you want to see in the City of Riverdale from housing to commercial development to education and more.
