The Eloy Community Development Department provides design guidance, reviews zoning and subdivision applications, and shapes public policy related to growth and development. We are committed to proactive, community-based planning founded on public participation, and to the building of livable, sustainable communities.

Our staff is committed to providing a high level of service to our clients, protecting our community assets, and guiding the creation of a prosperous city.
The Community Development Department is comprised of 5 divisions:
At their 2020 retreat, the Eloy City Council stated their goal to complete a master plan for the areas surrounding the airport. City staff is very excited about working on this plan and the opportunity to build on the success of Skydive Arizona and other existing businesses.
When planning for an airport we need to differentiate between the airport itself, or the area inside the fence, and the area outside the fence. The term airpark is often used by municipalities to describe the area surrounding an airport, located outside of the fence. Master plans for airports are subject to rigorous standards by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and are prepared by consultants that focus solely on airports. Airpark master plans are typically focused on land use and circulation and do not need to meet the same FAA standards.
Community Development staff is beginning the planning process for the Eloy Airpark, which will be undertaken by City staff. We will work closely with the Municipal Airport Advisory Board to develop recommendations to present to the Planning and Zoning Commission and the City Council.
Staff started working with the Municipal Airport Advisory Board this summer with the goal of helping them to develop a recommended master plan in early 2021.
