Pre-Development Conferences (PDC) with City staff are offered for applicants to learn more about City development policies and procedures and to address site specific issues.
These meetings are meant to be a “discovery” type meeting, designed to help all parties involved with project due diligence. The meetings will not serve as a comprehensive question and answer session, rather, assist in uncovering potential issues, a platform to create a common understanding between the applicant and City departments, and to help streamline the development process.
Representatives from development related City departments such as Transportation Development Services, Water Development Services, Development Services, and Fire, are present in the conference to evaluate the project to aid the developer in their project planning.
Pre-Development Conferences are scheduled in 30-minute increments, three days a week:
- Monday conferences are scheduled between 1:00 p.m. and 2:00 p.m.
- Tuesday conferences are scheduled between 3:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m.
- Thursday conferences are scheduled between 9:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m.
Land Development Process Trees
To help provide clear and concise guidelines for business, civic and neighborhood groups to develop the property, the Development Services Department's Project Facilitation team has produced a series of land development process trees.
The process trees illustrate the land development process and offer a drill-down into each individual process.

The city is exploring ways to improve its development web pages using these land development process trees. Future enhancements will seek to provide a streamlined, interactive permitting experience.
