The Augusta County Community Development Department is responsible for reviewing and developing plans that reflect the County’s interest in the preservation of the environment, the provision of efficient public facilities and services, the provision of diverse housing opportunities, and the effective utilization of the area’s land resources.

In its day to day operations, the Community Development Department works closely with the Building Inspection Department, the Commissioner of Revenue, the Parks and Recreation Department, the Augusta County Service Authority, and other county, state, and federal agencies.  Several key County functions operate under the Community Development Department, including planning, zoning, engineering, subdivision, mapping and street naming.
