Site Permit Review

Formerly known as Concurrent Review

Last updated Sep. 05, 2019 - 8:51 am
Concurrent Site Review is the combined submittal and review process that allows a development project to obtain ALL site approvals (land disturbance, infrastructure installation, TCA permits, etc.).
During a Concurrent Review, City staff review the plans for compliance with regulations related to stormwater, public utilities, transportation, fire, urban forestry, planning and zoning.
If the client is only seeking a land disturbance permit to clear and grade land, and not wishing to establish a use or install infrastructure, the Mass Grading process may be an option.
