Development approval: A path that can be simple is too often fraught with missteps. This program will provide insight on how to successfully navigate the city approval process.  The speakers will examine the need to understand the city’s guiding principles (Comprehensive Plan and Zoning Ordinance).  They will explore techniques for working with staff, doing your research and communicating a vision.  They will emphasize the importance of being accurate and realistic about your project and what contributes to making successful presentations to the Planning Commission and City Council.
The program will focus on the "dos" (and "don'ts") that can take you down the road to approval success, or completely derail a worthwhile project.

Join the panel of "insiders" as they share what has worked, and what will not:
  • Making presentations to the Planning Commission and City Council;
  • Demeanor matters;
  • Meetings with staff and neighbors during the review process;
  • Crafting your message;
  • The importance of precedent in gaining approval;
  • Being accurate and realistic about your project;
  • Doing your homework; and
  • Working with city staff.
