Important Process Information Prepare Application Materials Revisions to Approved Site Permit Review Plans Helpful Resources

Site Permit Review (SPR) is the combined submittal and review process that allows a development project to obtain all site approvals. Staff review plans for compliance related to stormwater, public utilities, transportation, fire, urban forestry, planning, and zoning regulations.

If you are seeking a land disturbance permit to clear and grade land, but don't wish to establish a use or install infrastructure, the Mass Grading process may be an option for you.

Tier One Site Plans may be subject to Site Permit Review if there is 12,000 square feet or more in land disturbance activity, an increase in the impervious surface area resulting in stormwater treatment, or public utility improvements.
