Zoning Process Improvement Project

As part of its efforts to improve the development review process, the Regulatory and Economic Resources Department's Development Services Division has been working on the establishment of a new pre-application process and on a streamlined schedule for County agencies’ review and comment.

A new web application allows the public to check on the process status of their pre-application package.

Pre-application meetings

Pre-application meetings are held every Thursday between 2:00 pm and 4:30 pm. To request a pre-application meeting all materials must be submitted no later than the Wednesday of the week prior. Each meeting will be 30 minutes in duration.

Meetings will take place at the Stephen P. Clark Center, 111 NW 1st Street, 11th floor Rear Conference Room.

Pre-application meetings will be required for the following application types:
• All Development Impact Committee (DIC)
• All Administrative Site Plan Review (ASPR)
• All Modifications to a Resolution and/or Covenant, if in conjunction with a site plan
• All Administrative Modifications
• Other public hearings, except single-family residential lots and others as determined by Development Services

• Single-family for non-use variances
