The Community Development and Services Department is concerned with programs for community planning, zoning and building safety, and the enforcement of building codes and neighborhood health and safety standards. The department consolidates municipal functions dealing with the maintenance, operation and repair of city streets, traffic signs and signals, street lights, side- walks, sewers, storm drains, parks and municipal buildings. This is also the place to go for renting city facilities for special events. Our mission statement says it all: "To Plan, Build and Care for the City."

Planning & Historic Preservation Commission

City Streets

The department is responsible for 60 miles of street maintenance and minor repairs, including repairing or replacing damaged or lost street signs, damaged or non-functioning traffic signals and street lights.

Major Street Repaving Planned for 2017-18

City staff has developed a plan of action for repaving as much as 50 city blocks of streets. City Council is expected to approve financing for the plan later this Fall. Depending on winter weather, that work is expected to get underway before the end of calendar year 2017. Known as the 2017 Infrastructure Renewal Plan, it calls for an updated pavement study to be completed first, after which the worst 5% of 60 miles of City streets will be targeted for repaving.

State highways 20 and 70 are located on portions of 9th, 10th, 12th, B and E Streets. Maintenance of those highways and traffic signals is the responsibility of California Department of Transportation (CalTrans).


The department is responsible for insuring that sidewalks throughout the City are maintained and repaired, including maintenance and replacement of street trees.

Sewer & Stormwater Management

The department operates the sanitary sewer collection and treatment within the city. Beginning in 2015, wastewater treatment for the city will take place at a new regional treatment plant south of Marysville operated by Linda County Water District.

Community Parks

Large parks designed for organized activities, sports or large group functions

Passive Parks

Small landscaped parcels that serve as green spaces

Neighborhood Parks

Found throughout residential neighborhoods. They cater to those neighborhoods by providing areas for outdoor enjoyment

If you wish to report a possible violation, be prepared to give a clear description of the problem, referring to one of the conditions listed above, along with the specific street address of the location involved. You may remain anonymous, but we will not be able to contact you for further information, should that be needed.
