Responsibilities
The Community Development Committee was established in 1978 and is an 11-member board that consists of nine city members and two members from Marion County extraterritorial jurisdiction who are appointed by the City Council and serve a three-year term.

Purpose
The purpose of the Community Development Committee (CDC) is to preserve and promote the unique charm, atmosphere, quaint and romantic character, natural beauty, and historical aspects of the Pella Business Districts. The CDC reviews design permits and sign permits. The Design Review District Design Manual contains the design parameters for architecture and signage and works together with the Design Review Overlay District and signage regulations. Architecture and signage subcommittees exist so minor architectural projects and sign permits can be reviewed quickly usually without having to go to full committee. The design permit application lists the major and minor permit types.
