Current Planning Application Packets

Current Planning administers land use reviews of applications such as site plans, subdivisions, rezoning, conditional use permits, special use permits and variances. Some of the applicable standards that are reviewed in this process include zoning, permitted uses, setbacks, height, landscaping, parking and signs.

Below are applications packets. Included in each packet is the case type checklist of items that are required for submittal, Guide to Development Applications Submittal, Development Application and any additional required documents specific to the case.

Please submit all land use cases and engineering projects not currently accepted through the E-Permit Center by email to epermitcenter@adcogov.org:
