Pre-Application Conference

Pre-application conferences are generally required in advance of applying for annexations, rezonings, preliminary plats, replats, modifications to a planned unit development (PUD), conditional uses, and any other land-use request the Zoning Administrator deems advisable to do so.

The purpose of a pre-application conference is to familiarize the applicant with the development review process and provide the applicant with considerations and requirements related to planning, zoning, engineering, and risk reduction.

Conferences are held on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month, with four half-hour blocks from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. The deadline for scheduling a conference is seven (7) days prior.

Please use the online application and scheduler to book your pre-application conference.

Pre-application conferences are intended to be a preliminary discussion of the applicant’s project and potentially applicable City processes.

The information conveyed by City staff at the pre-application conference and in the meeting summary report are preliminary and in response to information submitted by the applicant. Any change of plans or incorrect or incomplete information may change or invalidate the information conveyed. City staff cannot and does not provide any approvals, guarantees, or legal advice during the pre-application process.

There is no fee for a pre-application conference.
