NEW Planning submittal process
Planning applications and revised plans and documents for an existing application can now be submitted online:
The Planning Online Submittal Portal allows applicants to:
- Request a Submittal Checklist and Fees for New and Revised Submittals and Submit a Pre-Submittal Questionnaire, if needed
- Request to Submit a New Planning Application
- Request to Submit Revised Plans and Documents for an Existing Application (See new protocol below.)
- Request a Substantial Conformance Review (See new protocol below.)
Once your request is received, staff will provide you a submission link to upload documents.
The New Planning Submittal Guide is a step-by-step guide on what you can expect in the e-submittal process.
Your feedback is important to us! Feedback for this new submission process can be submitted here.
NEW Revised Submittal Protocol - The Planning Department is implementing a new protocol to streamline the routing of revised plans and documents to City Departments. For applications submitted in 2023, applicants will only be able to re-submit revised plans or documents once all Departments have reviewed the project, including the Planning Department. This new protocol will reduce the amount of unnecessary reviews conducted by each Department and may save applicants fees and time.
NEW Substantial Conformance Request Protocol - The Planning Department is implementing a new protocol to streamline the routing of substantial conformance requests. This is only applicable for applications previously approved. Before initiating your request through the Online Portal, please contact your Case Planner directly. Your Case Planner will determine if your request can be processed as a substantial conformance request based on preliminary information. If you do not know the name of your Case Planner or no longer have an active Case Planner assigned to your project, please email, email@example.com. If your request is submitted via the Online Portal prior to the Case Planner's authorization, it will be rejected.
