The Building & Planning Department coordinates land use developments, construction of new homes, commercial development and inspections. We work with developers, contractors, and the public to ensure all structures in St. John are properly built and enhance their surroundings. Our goal is to make sure St. John neighborhoods and commercial districts continue to be the vibrant places they are today.
