We’ve upgraded services at our Community Development Counter and now have qualified staff on hand to answer preliminary planning and development questions at the counter. While this service previously necessitated scheduling a Development Review Group (DRG) meeting a week or two in advance, staff is now taking these questions directly at the counter. The Community Development Counter is open Monday through Friday, 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM at City Hall, located at 7351 Rosanna Street.
This adjustment in services will allow DRG meetings to focus on timely review and processing of active development applications. As part of the paid application process, DRG members (representing various technical areas including planning, building, engineering, police and fire prevention) will conduct such meetings with applicants to further streamline review of their formal application submittal.
For preliminary proposals, those in advance of formal application submittal, Pre-Application DRG meetings are still available for the standard fee of $1,520 as established by City Council in 2014.
