Submittal Requirements

Submittal Requirements


Applying for a proposed project may require one or more land use permit applications.  Generally speaking, most projects require several application forms.  Building Department requirements are usually separate and may require many more permits for one project.  Below are select permit applications grouped by selected common land use proposals.  Please note that each project is a unique situation and may require additional permits.  This is intended to help an applicant get started in understanding all of the applications that must be filled out for one proposal.

As a rule-of-thumb, most pre-application submittals should include as much of the information listed under the specific permit(s) the project is applying for as possible.  This will allow staff to identify any key issues prior to full application submittal.
