The Planning Department was created in 1984 as a component of the City Manager's Office.
The purpose of the Planning Department is to implement programs, projects and legislation that will have a positive effect on the development of the City of Watertown as a community. It is involved in a wide variety of issues that effect the development of the community including zoning, downtown revitalization, riverfront development, tree planting, historic preservation, housing programs and economic development.
