Number of zoning cases submitted for the period ending 10/26/21:
The Planning and Urban Design department caps the number of zoning cases processed for each submittal deadline based on the type of zoning requests submitted and the number of full time planners on staff. The current number of applications accepted per deadline is 10. The number may be reduced if a large number of planned development districts are submitted during one cutoff period. Any cases accepted beyond the number assigned will be placed on the next cutoff. This number is updated after 4:00 p.m. each work day.
The tentative City Plan Commission (CPC) date shown for the cutoff date is dependent on deadlines for additional information being met by the applicant. The CPC date is also dependent on the case being postponed by the applicant or the opposition. The date above is a tentative date.
