Development Process

Development Services Center

Development Services is responsible for coordinating the review of development applications submitted to the City. Development applications include annexations, comprehensive plan amendments, zoning map amendments, subdivisions, and residential, commercial and industrial site plans. The review of development applications is coordinated with the Development Review Committee or DRC, as well as referral agencies, neighborhood groups, and other interested parties. The purpose of the DRC is to provide a coordinated and integrated staff and agency review of development applications.

Pre-application meetings are required prior to the submittal of a development application and are held every Wednesday at 9:30 and 10:30 with the DRC. Scheduling is done on a first come, first serve basis. The pre-application form and any accompanying information should be submitted to Development Services no later than 5 p.m. on the preceding Friday.


Development application submittals are due by 12:00 noon on each Thursday. In the event a Thursday is a holiday, the submittal date is the next business day.

Upon acceptance of the submittal, the property is required to be posted as identified in the Certificate of property posting and a copy of the certificate provided to your staff planner after posting. Signs are provided by the applicant.
A separate public hearing sign will also be required in the event the project requires review by the Planning and Zoning Commission or City Council.
