Pre Application Conference

Prior to the initiation of a new project, the city highly encourages potential applicants, developers, designers, and/or contractors to schedule a Pre Application Conference. These informal meetings with relevant city staff will help you plan your project and be aware of city codes or local conditions that may affect your project.
