The Strategic Business Unit, a division of Development Services, hosts pre-development meetings
to assist potential applicants
with planning successful developments and helps applicants navigate the permit process.
Services include coordination for development projects, troubleshooting, and problem solving to address issues that may occur during the development process.
These meetings are not meant to examine every detail associated with the development process; rather, they are a tool for City staff and the applicant to share information. We want the applicant to understand the next steps of the process, as well as any major concerns and applicable ordinances. This isn't a full review meeting; it's an advising meeting.
Staff is available for follow-up after the pre-development meeting, which is a one-hour virtual meeting. At the meeting, staff representatives from the following divisions/departments will be present:
