Preliminary Application Conference (PAC)

*Please note that all PAC meetings are currently being held virtually. A link to connect via Microsoft Teams will be provided when the meeting is confirmed.*

Who should schedule a PAC?

Potential applicants that have already contacted the Planner on Duty, or another staff member regarding a potential project, and have been recommended by staff to schedule a PAC.

What is discussed at a PAC?  

Applicants submit process questions and technical questions for staff regarding a specific property or a specific use on a property.  Preparing questions in advance of the meeting helps staff to have answers ready at the Preliminary Application Conference.

When are PACs held?  When do I need to schedule?

Preliminary Application Conferences are held on Wednesdays in one hour time slots from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.  Meetings are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis, and must be submitted online by Tuesday at 5:00 p.m. the week prior to be considered for the following week’s meetings.

Where are PACs held?

Preliminary Application Conferences are held virtually. A Microsoft Teams link for the meeting will be provided when the meeting is confirmed. 

Why do I need to schedule a PAC?

A Preliminary Application Conference provides the opportunity to find out information about a development site that you may not already know.  Staff will provide information about infrastructure requirements to develop a site, the potential responsibility to reimburse Brighton or other entities for previously-constructed infrastructure, fee structures, etc.  Brighton staff highly recommends taking the time to have a PAC meeting prior to submitting any land use application.
