Development and Permit Services

Development and Permit Services is a section of Planning and Community Development, which includes the Planning, Engineering and Building Departments.  These departments work together to review and process land use and building permit applications to ensure conformance with City codes, goals, policies, and regulations.

The development review process (i.e. commercial, industrial and multi-family developments, short plats, plats) consists of a 120-day review period.  Smaller projects such as new single-family homes, single-family additions and remodels, and tenant improvements take less time.  Click here to learn more about the project review and permitting process.

The City recommends applicants take advantage of our free pre-application meeting process to gain preliminary feedback of conceptual project designs prior to an official submittal.  City staff from multiple departments will attend the meeting to address any potential issues and assist applicants in preparing all the necessary documents for submittal.
