Applying for Development
One of the most important ways the Division of Planning implements the vision of the City's Master Plan is by reviewing proposed project and site developments, and deciding on subdivision requests. The Division coordinates the timely review of proposed development projects.
Planners review development applications for consistency with adopted master plan documents, zoning ordinances, redevelopment area plans, as well as impact on the environment, quality of design, compatibility with neighboring uses and the availability of public facilities (water and sewer, transportation, schools). The Division may recommend that proposed projects dedicate land for roads, schools, parks, or recreation facilities. Division staff works with developers and neighbors and relevant state and county agencies to address issues of concern before sending applications to the Planning Board or Zoning Board of Adjustments.
A development application can be submitted in three ways:
  • Planning Board Application – This application is submitted for development projects that are permitted within the zoning district or as a conditional use.
  • Zoning Board of Adjustments Application – This application is submitted for development projects that are NOT permitted within the zoning district but want a hearing for consideration and approval for development.
