About Community Development
The Community Development Department is responsible for planning, zoning, geographic information systems, building inspection, housing programs, grant administration, and economic development initiatives. We are committed to excellent service for residents, businesses, and visitors alike. The Community Development Department is charged with implementing the City of Menasha Comprehensive Plan and brand statement which reads as follows:
"Menasha has a rich industrial history...a heritage we owe in part to our advantageous location on Lake Winnebago, the Fox River and Little Lake Butte des Morts. These bodies of water have attracted energetic and innovative people to the city since its founding, and will continue to do so in the future. Today, as our relationship to the water shifts from industrial to recreational, we welcome residents and visitors alike to experience and enjoy Menasha’s unique place on the water. Menasha’s abundance of well maintained, public waterfront access, provides everyone living and working here the opportunity to enjoy a wide array of natural beauty, relaxation and water recreation. As a result, our city can boast of offering one of the most uniquely vibrant, colorful and active lifestyles in the entire region."
We look forward to assisting you with your needs. Reach out to our department or stop by City Hall for more information.
