Planning Department

The Planning Department works with citizens and community leaders to build a consensus on how the City should grow, both in the short and long term. This is accomplished by creating a vision for the future of the City of Sherwood and reviewing all new development proposals to ensure they reflect this vision.  The Planning Department facilitates all development review in Sherwood, such as re-zones, conditional use permits, preliminary subdivisions and site plan applications.

Land Division Process

There are three departments involved in the process to divide land for the purposes of development:
Planning, Engineering, and Building.

The three departments have separate processes, but do coordinate with one another to ensure that you do not get too far in the process with one department without addressing issues and concerns that another department may have.
