Community Development


The growth of Selma is executed by the Community Development Department which encompasses the Building and Planning departments. These departments serve critical roles and ensure that the growth of the city happens in a smooth, thorough and timely manner according to the city code and other requirements. Park projects, residential developments, commercial developments and more all start with the Community Development Department before they turn into vibrant assets for the residents of Selma.

Zoning Code Update Project: The City of Selma is updating its Zoning Code (see Municipal Code) to conform with the General Plan. For this effort we are seeking community input. An initial workshop was held virtually on July 14, 2021. A joint Planning Commission and City Council meeting will be held in August and an Open House Workshop in September. Check back for updates on our community calendar or contact the Community Development Department.
