Application Review Timelines

COVID UPDATE

Effective immediately, development review deadlines have been extended by one week from standard timelines noted below in order to calibrate current workload with a reduction in staff capacity and maintain quality service. This change is in keeping with the City’s Development Review Team Mission, Policies, and Procedures. We are committed to continuously re-evaluating capacity and workload to determine when standard timelines may be restored.

Standard Application Review Timelines

Development applications are assigned a project manager and distributed to the City’s Development Review Team (DRT) within two business days of a complete submittal to the Planning and Community Development Department.  Applications are assigned a three- or four-week review timeline based on the complexity of the project type, as listed in the table below. The policy of the DRT is to provide all applicants with review comments within 30 calendar days of application receipt, whenever possible. Concurrent applications will track with the application requiring the longest review timeline. The Planning Director may extend review timelines when application volume exceeds staff capacity.
