The Office of Community Development focuses on planning for future housing, neighborhood development and supporting local businesses.  The following pages are designed to inform you of the many way’s OCD can assist you, whether you are a startup or growing business, buying a home or repairing your home.


The Office of Community Development’s mission is to enhance the character and diversity of the city’s neighborhoods and support economic growth that expands opportunities for residents, enables a high quality of life within the community, and contributes to a healthy environment.


The Office of Community Development administers federal, state and private grants on behalf of the Town of Plymouth, for the good of all residents, focusing on those of low to moderate incomes.  The most significant responsibility for the Office of Community Development is the administration of the Community Development Block grant (CDBG).   Our programs are designed to support initiatives that:

  • Benefit low-to-moderate income persons;
  • Promote quality housing, jobs and sense of community;
  • Enhance deteriorated residential and business districts, and
  • Maximize citizen participation

Some of our programs are funded in part by the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development.  In the provision of our services, we do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, gender or gender identity, age, religion, marital status, familial status, sexual orientation, ancestry, public assistance, veteran history/military status, genetic information or disability.
