2) A staff member will contact you to determine if a Pre-Submittal meeting is needed. Pre-Submittal meetings
are held between 1:30 and 4 PM every Tuesday and Thursday. This mandatory meeting is scheduled to
facilitate the development process by providing you with the applicable development requirements and
discussing issues associated with your proposed project. For the meeting to be most effective and to better
serve you, please bring to the meeting all relevant development documents such as site plans, plat,
photographs, as well as a written description of proposed development.
3) The applicant or representative must notify planning staff of a cancellation a minimum of 48 hours
prior to the scheduled Pre-Submittal meeting. In the event an applicant or representative either does
not attend a scheduled Pre-Submittal meeting or does not provide a hour notice of cancellation, the
City will delay rescheduling a Pre-Submittal meeting. The degree of delay depends upon the number
of previous cancellations (without adequate notification) or lack of attendance. Any occurrence would
result in a delay based on the availability of future scheduled meetings. A Pre-Submittal meeting will
be cancelled if an applicant is more than 15 minutes late. Consequently, the applicant will be subject
to the above listed provision.
