The Development Services Department is dedicated to assisting developers, contractors, business owners, homeowners, and the citizens of Farmington with compliance with the City of Farmington Zoning Ordinances and Building Codes. We strive to work closely with those we serve to efficiently administer the appropriate zoning or building regulations in a collaborative, consistent, professional and transparent manner.
Our Department consists of the Development Services Director (Tim Porter); Development Services Coordinator (Kristen White); Building Inspectors (Zach Tedford and Tyler Henson); and Code Enforcement Officer (Brian Hinson).
Tim Porter serves as the Development Services Director. He has been with the City of Farmington since 1995 and began his tenure as Director in July of 2017. He works closely with the Planning and Zoning Commission, the Historical Preservation Commission, the Building Code Advisory Board, the Board of Adjustment, and City Council on matters related to planning, zoning, and building code enforcement.
Kristen White has been with the City of Farmington as the Development Services Coordinator since 2020. She coordinates the inspection schedule with our building inspectors, assists with permit applications, ensures legal compliance for public hearings, attends and prepares agendas and records minutes at meetings, collects fees, oversees the contractor licensing process, and has many other pertinent duties.
Tyler Henson and Zach Tedford have been employed with the City of Farmington since 2015 as Building Inspectors. They perform both residential and commercial inspections.
Brian Hinson, our Code Enforcement Officer, is retired from the United States Air Force and has been employed with the City since 2019. Using the International Property Maintenance Code and the City ordinance related to Dangerous Buildings, Brian works hard to ensure that property is maintained in accordance with code.
We are your first step in assisting in both Zoning and Building Code compliance. We encourage and welcome you to contact us with your questions related to development and building within the City of Farmington.
