How does the review process work?

The Development Services Department conducts two application checks to ensure that applications are complete before staff begins the development review process. Prior to accepting an application, staff will conduct a "Counter Complete" review of the submittal package. This initial Counter Complete review ensures that all required submittal items are contained within the package. If each item on the submittal requirement list has been submitted, the application will be accepted for further review.

Prior to processing the application, the Development Services Department shall determine that the application is "Technically Complete". A Technically Complete application must contain all information required by the applicable development regulations as they apply to the proposed land use action.

Within twenty-eight calendar days after receiving a project permit application, the City will mail or personally provide a determination to the applicant which states either that the application is complete or that the application is incomplete and what is necessary to make the application complete.
