The primary function of the Community Development Department is to promote orderly growth and redevelopment within the City of Moberly. The authority to enact zoning and subdivision regulations has been granted to cities and counties by the state legislature through the passage of statutes. These statutes require the participation of three administrative bodies to administer these regulations.

Digital mapping system

The City of Moberly utilizes a digital mapping system, called the GIS (Geographic Information System), to view and maintain data regarding real estate parcels, cemetery plots, utility infrastructure, elevation contours, and zoning information.

•  Real estate parcels
Information regarding ownership, legal description, and lot dimensions of parcels.

•  Infrastructure locations
The location of water mains, water structures such as fire hydrants, gravity sewer mains, force sewer mains, and sewer structures such as manholes. Details such as the diameter of mains, the type of material they are constructed from, depth of a sewer manhole, and much more are maintained in the system.

•  Contour and elevation information
The elevation of high and low points within the City of Moberly can be viewed. This is useful to City staff in determining the best approach to making infrastructure repairs and other maintenance tasks.

•  Zoning information
The various zoning districts within the City of Moberly are maintained in the GIS system and can be used to determine the proper location of businesses and residences.

•  Color aerial photography
Digital aerial photographs were taken of the City of Moberly in the fall of 2014. This data coupled with the data previously described provides a comprehensive view of the city.

•   Cemetery Plot Location
Unsure of where a loved one is buried? The Oakland Cemetery is digitally mapped so that each grave site has a point location within the GIS System. A lighted kiosk with computerized name search and lot location mapping is located at the main entrance to the Oakland Cemetery.
