Current Planning Projects

Current Planning 

Current planning involves implementation of adopted land use plans, policies and development regulations through review of specific land use and development applications. Development review includes re-zones, tree permits, conditional use permits, preliminary subdivisions, final plats and site plan applications. The Current Planning Staff works with applicants on projects ranging from sign permits to annexations and subdivisions and also staffs the front counter from 8:30 am – 5:00 pm for all land use related questions from the community.
 
The land use application process can begin with the submittal of a pre-application packet. Staff distributes the packet to the other Departments within the City, Fire, Building, Water, Sewer, Engineering, etc for their specific feedback on the project, then compiles that information along with the land use issues into a pre-app document that is used in a follow up meeting between the applicant and the Project Planner to assist in directing the applicant's efforts towards a complete land use application submittal.
 
Depending on the type of project, the formal submittal may either be administratively approved by staff or may be scheduled to be heard by the Planning Commission. In either case, notices to properties surrounding the project are sent out before and after the final decision has been rendered.
