The Office of Planning and Development is responsible for implementation and management of the County’s redevelopment projects. A key component of this effort is creating opportunities for Public-Private Partnerships that leverage County assets and facilitate initiatives.

OPD provides analysis and assessment of business vitality in areas targeted for County redevelopment initiatives and works with relevant County departments, public agencies and private-sector resource partners to develop strategic programs to enhance business sustainability.

OPD advises the County Executive and elected officials on planning and land use matters related to County land and the optimal use of County resources.
