Pre-Development Information

Pre-Development Conferences are generally scheduled in ½ hour increments and are held twice weekly. Monday conferences are scheduled between 1 p.m. and 2 p.m., Tuesday are scheduled between 3 p.m. and 4 p.m., and Thursday meetings are held between 9 a.m. and noon.

Pre-Development Conferences 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 developers in their project due diligence. These meetings cannot be serve as a comprehensive questions and answer sessions; rather they are useful in uncovering potential issues, are a good platform to create a common understanding amongst all city departments, and help to streamline the development process.

Representatives from development related city departments such as Transportation & Public Works, Water, Planning & Development and Fire are present to evaluate the project to aid the developer in their project planning.
