Pre-Development Information

Pre-Development Conferences are generally scheduled in ½ hour increments and are held twice weekly. Monday conferences are scheduled between 1 and 3 p.m., and Thursday meetings are held between 9 a.m. and noon.

Predevelopment Conferences with city staff are offered for applicants to learn more about city development policies and procedures and to address site specific issues.

These meetings are meant to be a “discovery” type meeting designed to help developers in their project due diligence. These meetings cannot be serve as a comprehensive questions and answer sessions; rather they are useful in uncovering potential issues, are a good platform to create a common understanding amongst all city departments, and help to streamline the development process.

Representatives from development related city departments such as Transportation/Public Works, Water, Planning & Development and Fire are present to evaluate the project to aid the developer in their project planning.
