Community Development Department




95% of the land within Gila County is under federal control. This provides vast expanses of wilderness areas and the opportunity to become familiar with the Apache Indian culture.

The Community Development Department has the responsibility of overseeing how development occurs within the unincorporated areas of Gila County.  This is accomplished through the coordinated efforts of four divisions.

  1. Building Safety
  2. Code Enforcement
  3. Planning and Zoning
  4. Wastewater
