Comprehensive Development Master Plan (CDMP) Applications


CDMP Amendment Cycle Applications

Applications to amend the Comprehensive Development Master Plan (CDMP) may be filed in the January, May, or October CDMP amendment cycles (a.k.a. Cycle Applications). Cycle applications may include changes to the Land Use Plan (LUP) map, CDMP text, and CDMP map series. The amendment process is approximately 7-months for “Small-scale Applications” (10 acres or less) and approximately 10 months for “Standard Applications” (properties over 10 acres or text changes).

CDMP Expedited Amendment Applications

Expedited applications to amend the CDMP may be filed at any time. Applications may include changes to Land Use Plan (LUP) map designations inside the Urban Development Boundary (UDB) and/or text amendments. The fees for expedited applications have a multiplier of 2.5.

Instructions for Filing a CDMP Amendment Cycle or Expedited Application

After the CDMP Amendment application is submitted online, applicants will receive a Notice of Receipt with information on fees to be paid and application deficiencies to be addressed, if any. Applicants of a Cycle Application have five business days from the close of the filing period or Notice of Receipt, whichever occurs later, to submit payment and cure deficiencies.

The processing of an expedited application will not commence until the application is deemed complete. For an application to be deemed complete, all required documents must be submitted, including printed copies, and the appropriate fee paid. For detailed filing instructions for the Amendment Cycle Applications and Expedited CDMP Amendment Applications, visit the CDMP Amendment Cycles webpage.
