Guide to Development

​The following guide to development is intended to help applicants smoothly navigate the City's development process.

​​

Locate Your Site


Where you propose to locate or build may determine your level of development review. First, determine if you are locating in the Historic District. Then, see the zoning map and cross reference the zoning ordinance for details regarding your zoning designation.

Development Flowchart
The development flowchart summarizes how a development review process might go, from start to finish.

Note: The City offers one conceptual site plan review submittal and meeting with City staff, free of charge, ahead of a future Planning Commission submittal.

​Permit Center
