The City Planning and Development Office was previously part of the Municipal Engineer’s Office (MEO). The Municipal Engineer then was Engr. Teodocio Pabillaran. Under the MEO before is the Municipal Development Staff. Some of the staff from MDS was Herculano S. Ronolo, Sonia Dulanas, Renato Tolibao, Bonifacio Tadlas, Henrietta Suson, and Marilyn Paler. They were the first men and women of the Municipal Planning Development Office when it was created in 1985, with Mr. Herculano S. Ronolo as the Municipal Planning and Development Coordinator.

On February 11, 1998, under Republic Act 8490, Malaybalay was created into a city, thus, changing the name from Municipal to City Planning and Development Office. Mr. Herculano S. Ronolo was the CPDC until he retired from office in 2013. He was then succeeded by Engr. Adrian R. Gamboa and he is the CPDC until now. Mr. Ronolo, on the other hand, is currently serving as the City Administrator.
