Community Development

Mission Statement

The Eloy Community Development Department provides design guidance, reviews zoning and subdivision applications, and shapes public policy related to growth and development. We are committed to proactive, community-based planning founded on public participation, and to the building of livable, sustainable communities.  

The Eloy Community Development Department assists citizens, property owners, and appointed and elected officials with land development functions to grow, manage and sustain our city.

Our staff is committed to providing a high level of service to our clients, protecting our community assets, and guiding the creation of a prosperous city.


The Community Development Department is comprised of 5 divisions:

City Code Amendments

As cities change and grow, city codes should be amended from time to time to keep pace with those changes.  City staff has reviewed our ordinance and compared it with other zoning codes in the State.  The proposed amendments are shown on this page, under quick links.  The Planning and Zoning Commission will hear these amendments on August 19 at 6 pm in the City Council Chambers at City Hall: 595 North C Street, Eloy.

Development Fees and Capacity Charges

The City of Eloy, like many cities and towns across the State, assess development fees to offset infrastructure costs for necessary public services.   

Development fees are one-time payments used to construct system improvements needed to accommodate new development. The fee represents future development’s proportionate share of infrastructure costs. Development fees may be used for infrastructure improvements or debt service for growth related infrastructure. In contrast to general taxes, development fees may not be used for operations, maintenance, replacement, or correcting existing deficiencies.

Capacity charges are similar in design and purpose to development fees, although different in statutory authority.  They are one-time charges for new development’s proportionate impact on water and sewer system capacity.  They are used to fund capacity improvements needed to serve new development, not maintenance and repair or operations.  New development will benefit from the capital improvements funded with capacity fees. 

The City Council adopted new development fees on April 27, 2020.  These fees became effective on July 13.  The Council also adopted new water and wastewater capacity charges on March 9, 2020.  These new charges became effective on April 27.  

The revised fees and capacity charges are shown on this page, under Quick Links.
