What happens after an application is submitted?
The staff will review the application to verify its completeness. Once the application is accepted, any deficiencies will be noted and told to the owner, applicant and/or agent. If this is an administratively approved subdivision (minor or family) the Subdivision Agent will conduct a review of the application and plat to ensure all requirements have been met.

If it is a major subdivision it will be placed on the agenda for the appropriate Technical Review Committee (TRC) and Planning Commission meetings based on the submission date. TRC meetings are generally held the 1st Wednesday of each month to discuss and review site plans and subdivision plats, while the Planning Commission meetings are generally held on the 3rd Wednesday of each month.

The applicant will receive notice of the date, time, and place for the Planning Commission action on the application. The Subdivision Agent will prepare a staff report for the Commission members concerning the request, which will include pertinent code sections and factual statements. The applicant will receive a copy of this report approximately one week prior to the meeting. Members of the Commission may inspect the property prior to the meeting to better appreciate the request. However, the members do not generally meet with the applicant during the inspection or prior to the Commission meeting.
