Application Review Timelines

11/1/2022 UPDATE

Effective immediately, development review deadlines have been extended by one week from our standard timelines in order to manage current workload with 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 timelines need to be adjusted.

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 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.
