Planning and Development Checklists
Applicants with conceptual proposals are required to meet with the City Planner before applying to be on the Plan Commission. A review will be completed and you will be informed if you need to attend a Plan Staff meeting. A Plan Staff meeting is an informal meeting with the Mayor, Engineer, Planner, Attorney, Administrator, Building Inspector and Fire Department in which each department reviews your proposal and helps prepare you for the Plan Commission meeting. These meetings are by appointment only on Wednesday mornings.
Use these checklists to ensure you have the items the planner, engineer, or building inspector are looking for. To have the items listed will move your overall project along more quickly.
