Land Use Submittals, Preapplication Conference Requests, Consultations & Building Permit Submittals

Make an appointment to submit your permit application or schedule some time to speak with a Planner. 

Consultations     8:30 am to 9:00 am     Monday, Wednesday, Friday
Meet with a city planner and a development engineer to discuss your project.
The purpose of the Consultation is to discuss in general terms project permit application questions.  Staff will not prepare for the consultation nor will they produce any written or electronic documentation of the discussion.  It is the applicant's responsibility to take notes.  As no project permit application will have been submitted at the time of such a meeting, the city will not make any binding commitments.  The Director is authorized to deduct the consultation fee from the official land use permit fee if a subsequent preapplication meeting or land use permit is applied for by the applicant within one year of a consultation meeting.  
A fee of $180 will be due at the time of the meeting.
