Procedure For Setting Up A Concept Review Meeting

    Before submitting a preliminary plat, minor subdivision, planned district zoning and/or site plan, or annexation request, it is necessary to first have a concept review meeting with City staff. A completed Development Review Application shall be submitted with such requests.

    After receiving the completed Development Review Application and required materials, the request reviewed by staff and a meeting will be set up with the applicant and appropriate departments via e-mail. The e-mail notice will contain the date, time and location of the scheduled concept review meeting.

    Meetings are normally scheduled on Tuesday and Thursday, in time increments of 30 minutes to one hour, beginning at 9:00 a.m. or 2:00 p.m. Please indicate in your letter the date and time you would prefer. The Planning Department will try to accommodate your request depending upon availability. The concept review meetings are usually held approximately 10 business days after receiving the request.

    The concept review is an informal meeting, attended by representatives of various City departments and private utility companies. At the meeting, the proposal is discussed with the applicant. Following the meeting, the applicant will receive a written list of comments pertaining to access, utilities and other proposal-related issues discussed at the meeting.
