This site has been prepared as an aid to homeowners and builders and should be used as an outline of the City's review process. We have attempted to explain the nuances of the process without overwhelming the user.

This site is not the final word and City staff should be consulted throughout the process. Further, not all projects are subject to steps within this site.
