NOTE: We will not be able to accept permit and project applications that require a Public Hearing. We are not currently accepting Special Event permits.

Pre Application Meetings

Pre-application meetings will be available with the caveat that the meeting will not be “in-person” during the closure of City Hall. Pre-application meetings will either be a phone or conference call between you and your team and the project manager to discuss the review team’s prepared notes; or a phone or video conference call between your team and our team. In all situations you will receive the written comments from each review discipline. The assigned project manager would determine which scenario would best suit the project and staffing levels.

If you would like to move forward with this level of pre-application meeting you can submit using the options listed above.
