We have one office that handles planning, zoning, economic development (to the extent that we actively do economic development!), and building/code enforcement. I have argued to our mayor that we should consider restructuring, and he agrees and wants me to come up with a proposal. So, my rather open-ended question to other public sector planners is... how is your department organized? I think we need to have one person oversee planning and another handle building/code enforcement - so we would end up with a director of planning and a building department director. Finally, we may also need to separate out economic development. As you can tell, I am struggling with what to suggest - how best to make sure everything gets done and no one person is completely overwhelmed without over-segmenting the various jobs so that there is duplication of effort. As you can also probably tell, I am completely confused - any help would be much appreciated!
