Our Vision

Building a better tomorrow, starting today

Our Mission
Promote public welfare and safety, improve aesthetics and advance urban 
design, enhance the business community, and preserve neighborhoods by providing quality service that is knowledgeable, efficient, comprehensive, and helpful.

Development coordinates the approval processes for building
planning and zoning, and redevelopment activities in the city. The department ensures that existing properties and newly constructed buildings meet all applicable codes and regulations. It also provides long-range comprehensive planning services and short-range zoning information. 

“Early and Often” – If you are thinking of bringing a new development 
project to New Port Richey, the Development Department strongly encourages you to meet with us “Early and Often,” preferably before any 
project design work has begun. Whether you are the developer, land planner, 
or the property owner, Development will arrange a meeting with members of various City departments to discuss your potential project and conceptual site plan early 
in the design process.

Pre-application assistance allows for early feedback on how conceptual site 
plans relate to the Comprehensive Plan and development regulations, and 
identification of potential issues, such as the availability of utilities, street connections and other infrastructure, and additional information that may 
relate to a proposal.

Working with your design team allows the City to guide you toward a 
successful application that best represents the vision of the New Port Richey, 
and helps ensure for a smoother approval process.  The Development Department is also available to provide information to residents, landowners, developers and real estate professionals on zoning requirements applicable to 
their properties.

Property Jurisdiction: 

Before contacting the Development Department, check the Pasco County Property Appraiser’s website to ensure that the property you are  inquiring about is located in the City of New Port Richey’s jurisdiction.  Not all properties within New Port Richey zip codes are located in the City limits.

Fold Your Plans Like a Pro!
Why does the Development Department ask that you fold your development plans this way? A properly folded plan 1) makes the title block visible without having to open the entire sheet, 2) is easier to open and close, and 3) fits in standard size file folder.
