Land Development Coordination Section
What We Do
This section is responsible for the operation of the One-Stop Shop located on the ground floor of the Plaza del Sol building downtown. This shop conveniently provides permitting, contractor resources, developer resources and homeowner resources in one place.
How We Serve You
The One-Stop Shop takes applications for site development plans for subdivisions and building permits requiring Environmental Planning Commission or Development Review Board approval, vacations of public and private easements and rights-of-way, platting actions, bulk land variances, subdivision improvements agreements extensions, subdivision design variances, sidewalk waivers, and construction deferrals.
In addition, applications for Landmarks and Urban Conservation Commission, administrative approvals or amendments of site plans, zone map amendments, zoning code text amendments, Comprehensive/Area/Sector Plan amendments, and petitions for annexations are accepted at the One-Stop Shop.
Adopted City plans, the City Comprehensive Zoning Code and the Zone Atlas are also sold here. Many “how to” questions pertaining to these requirements and processes are addressed in the Summary of Land Development Procedures.
Development Review Board
The administrative functions for the Development Review Board (DRB) are another important responsibility of this section. Records for DRB cases are available at the One-Stop Shop.
The section manager also chairs the DRB and is responsible for reviewing subdivision applications for compliance with the Subdivision Ordinance, City Comprehensive Zoning Code and other applicable land use plans.
The DRB also has ePlan submission available. Click here to learn more about DRB ePlan and find step-by-step instructions on how to use the electronic plan review system.
