What happens after the neighborhood meeting?
Following the neighborhood meeting, the applicant finalizes and submits their application to the Community Development Department at least 45 days prior to the public hearing date, to begin the application review process. Community Development then reviews the application and, if complete, distributes it to other city departments for review and comment. View a development flowchart for specific details.

If the application is complete, it is also assigned to a staff planner in Community Development and scheduled for a public hearing with either the Manhattan Urban Area Planning Board or Board of Zoning Appeals as follows:

  • Planning Board applications: annexation; rezoning, including planned unit developments (PUDs); preliminary subdivision plats; state or municipally owned and operated public facility reviews.

  • Board of Zoning Appeals applications: conditional use requests.
