Development Review

Overview


The City's Development Review section of the Community Development Department coordinates the review and approval of development applications and determines their compliance with the City's Comprehensive Plan, Land Development Code and other related city ordinances as well as local, state and federal code requirements and regulations.

Planning project managers work closely with the development team and other City departments (SDRC – Staff Development Review Committee) guiding projects through the review and approval process. This approach results in a more streamlined and timely review and provides the development team with continual guidance and support from staff.

Development Review typically occurs in four phases:
  • Pre-application
  • Application Submittal
  • SDRC review
  • Public meeting / approval
