What we do

The Department of Public Property (DPP) manages the buildings and structures where City employees work and where City equipment is kept. Our department buys, sells, leases, designs, constructs, renovates, and maintains City properties. DPP makes sure that facilities operated by the City are in safe condition, are accessible, and that they function well.

Our divisions include:

  • Administration
  • Real estate and planning
  • Capital programs
  • Facilities management

These divisions work together to manage city properties, provide customer service, and plan for future building needs.

Our mission: We responsibly serve the City’s workforce and community by providing quality facilities and work spaces, of which we are proud.
