Submittal Guides

Residential Guides

Residential development that complies with current Zoning District development standards and minimum permits can bypass the entitlement process; all other projects must complete the entitlement process before submitting for Plan Review & Permitting.

Homeowners should check the deed restrictions in their subdivision, since these deed restrictions may be more stringent than the City ordinances. A Development Services representative will assist you with the city Zoning Ordinance concerning: required setbacks, easements, and legal descriptions.

Commercial Guides

Case documents identify specific items required for final plan submittal, including additional documents, such as design reports and dedication documents. See the Construction Document Submittal Checklist from the Case file for this information
