Developmental Services

The Department of Developmental Services provides the primary connection between the Town and Penfield’s business community. The Department of Developmental Services monitors business development throughout Penfield and serves as the Town’s liaison to the Penfield Business Chamber.

The Director of Developmental Services oversees development applications that require Town Board review (e.g., Four Corners District, LaSalle’s Landing Development District, and Planning Development District). The Director works with the Town Board on other Town Board special projects as needed. 

This department also works closely with the Town’s Building Services, Engineering, and Planning Departments to identify planning, zoning, and development issues and needs. Developmental Services also assists with implementing the policies and processes required to meet the Town’s development priorities and goals, such as grant seeking, long-range planning efforts, and Town Code updates.
