What is a Pre-Development Meeting?

Prior to the initiation of a new project, the City requires all potential applicants, developers, designers and/or contractors to schedule a pre-development meeting. These informal meetings with relevant city staff will help you plan your project and be aware of city codes or local conditions that may affect your project. The purpose of pre-development meetings is to provide a “one-stop-shop,” a means of meeting with all departments involved in the development process. These meetings are scheduled to introduce the developers to local development regulations and the officials responsible for all aspects of development. These meetings provide an opportunity for the developer to discuss their proposal with City Officials and get their input. These are required for each new development as each official responsible directly for the review of the project is in attendance.
