Application Process and Submittal Information

PLEASE NOTE: Any land use or development applications submitted or re-submitted to the Planning Division on or after December 1st will require an additional week of city and external agency review due to limited staffing and city hall closures over the holidays. 

Applications for Land Use and Development are processed within the online submittal portal only.  If you are ready to submit a land use application, click here to advance to our online application services.  Building permits are not processed through this system. 

For any land use application to be referred out for review that week to the Development Review Committee and external agencies, all project submittals and resubmittals must be complete, submitted online and required paper copies submitted in person or via mail to the City by 5:00 p.m. on each Tuesday and they will be checked in by staff generally on Wednesday.
