Planning oversees several of the processes involving new and existing development and redevelopment within the City. Planning strives to provide the highest level of customer service and convenience through the coordination of the development review process.


Planning is committed to ensuring all new construction projects or new businesses within the City of Hollywood have a positive impact on the quality of life, of our residents, businesses and visitors.

This is achieved by Planning's primary responsibility of administering the City's Zoning and Land Development Code. The Zoning and Land Development Code outlines specific requirements regarding permitted uses, building setbacks, use separations, density, height, and location as well as parking, landscaping, signage, and more.
