The mission of the Community Development Department is to plan and guide the orderly growth and development of the City, to enforce compliance with applicable legislation in order to meet the quality of life, health, and safety needs of the community, and to deliver to its customers courteous, efficient, and competent services. The Community Development Department is made of the following separate but related divisions:


Building Inspections and Permits

The City of Moore is one of the fastest growing communities in the OKC metro area and welcomes quality commercial and residential development. The Inspections staff is committed to providing friendly and efficient service, offering same-day inspections if called in by 9:00am, and reviewing residential building permits in just 2-3 days! To make the process even easier, we have provided all applications on-line, so you can fill them out at your convenience.

Code Enforcement Division

The Code Enforcement Division works to reduce neighborhood nuisances and residential deterioration within the city. Typical violations include overgrown weeds, shrubs or trees, parking in the yard, junked vehicles, trash and debris.

Environmental Services

The City of Moore's Environmental Services Unit is dedicated to improving the environment by offering safe ways to dispose of hazardous waste, convenient options for recycling, and educating the public on the effects of wrongful disposal of liquids into our city sewer system. These values are important in promoting a healthy environment for all residents and visitors alike. 

Grants Administration

Grants are an important source of revenue to fund various community programs and activities. The City is always actively seeking grant funding to improve the community. For questions concerning grant activities, call (405) 793-5053.

Planning Division

Planning is an essential service provided by the city to promote the health, safety, and welfare of our residents. Most people don't realize what the planning division does, but it touches every aspect of city-life...from the size of your lots to the location of streets. Following are the main functions of the planning division, however we are always working on special projects that are showcased on the Community Development homepage!
