The purpose of this section is to act as a guide to the processes, functions, and resources for any person looking to build, develop, or inquire about the City of Monroe. It is a collection of procedures that any individual must take in order to pursue a desired development. In creating the guide, the City was focused on creating an easy to use guide that any individual, resident or not, could use as a starting point in the development process. While the guide is comprehensive, it does not act on its own. The recommended use of the guide is always in conjunction with dialogue with City officials, staff, departments, and other resources.
