The five members of the Development Review Board are City staff representing the City Planner (Planning Director), Parks and Recreation Director, City Engineer, Traffic Engineer, and Water/Sewer Utilities Engineer.

The chairperson is the City Planner representative as per the City Subdivision Ordinance. Each member is authorized to sign plats. The Development Review Board is charged with administering the City Subdivision Ordinance as well as other City ordinances and policies applicable to subdivision actions.

The Board conducts public hearings on major subdivision actions (where no re-zoning or annexation is required), approves or denies proposed major and minor subdivision actions, vacations of public rights of way or public and private easements, subdivision variances. Development Review Board also reviews site development plans delegated by the Environmental Planning Commission (EPC) for final sign off, as well as site development plans required by sector plans and delegated to the Development Review Board.
