Starting Monday, April 12, one week of review time will be added to 1st and 2nd round submittals for most development applications. For applications already in City review, this change will take effect on Monday, May 10. All 1st and 2nd round submittals will also be subject to a Completeness Review. Please contact DRCoord@fcgov.com with questions about submittals and timeframes.
