  4. Issuance of Permits
Development Services is the lead department for the Pre-Application process. During this process, applicants will receive a complete and comprehensive list of comments from multiple departments, including Land Development. The purpose of this list is to provide applicants with sufficient information (for “due diligence”) to determine if this is a viable project for them, while adhering to City and engineering standards, codes, ordinances, policies and procedures.

Conditions of Approval
The City also provides applicants with a complete and comprehensive list of Conditions of Approval (COAs) for each project. The COAs are typically categorized as conditions required prior to:
  • Issuance of building permit
  • Issuance of certificate of occupancy
  • Issuance of grading permit
  • Map recordation
Typical Land Development COAs may include, but are not limited to:
  • Fees and required plans
  • Permits
  • Public improvement
  • Reports
  • Required easements and access points
  • Studies
  • Water quality regulations
