The Planning and Development Department has designed this service for applicants who would like to meet with staff prior to a planning submittal to guide their efforts and resources.
The primary purpose of a pre-application meeting is to provide an applicant with specific information on process requirements for the applicant's proposal and includes representatives from the following:
Flood Control District
Zoning Plan Review
A pre-application meeting is required for any planning applications that require a citizen review process (Zone Change, Special Use Permit, Military Compatibility Permits, Development Master Plan, Comprehensive Plan Amendment, and Preliminary Plats.)
Proprietary Issue & Fees
Whether or not a proposal is supportable by staff may be discussed, but final determination will not be made until a formal application is evaluated. (Note: the Board of Supervisors can overturn staff's recommendation).
Pre-application meetings are considered proprietary and any information received or discussed is not considered public information. Please see the application packet below for applicable fees.
