COVID-19 Development Services

DEVELOPMENT SERVICES CONTINUE AMID COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS 

While the community continues to practice “Safer at Home” guidelines to help slow the spread of COVID-19, the City of Bedford reminds patrons that many of the City’s development services continue to be provided on a daily basis

Development services – those that position the City for recovery, such as planning, permitting and other business services, continue to be provided amid the COVID-19 restrictions. The Development staff is using technology to process permit applications and conduct plan reviews, which are essential for Bedford’s economic recovery. 

Commercial and residential construction is a significant contributor to the local economy. The ability to provide these services remotely, or by some other innovative manner during these uncertain times, allows current construction to continue, and construction on approved projects to begin immediately when the COVID-19 restrictions are lifted.  

City buildings remain closed until further notice. To protect the health of employees and others, the staff is using appropriate social distancing techniques while on the job. However, the City of Bedford Development Departments are “Open For Business”. 

Please feel free to call or email the staff at any of the methods below.
