Conceptual Reviews & Preliminary Design Reviews

Conceptual Reviews

All proposed land development projects begin with Conceptual Review. Anyone with a land development idea can schedule a Conceptual Review meeting to get feedback on prospective development ideas. At this stage, the development idea does not need to be finalized or professionally presented. However, a sketch plan or site plan and this application must be submitted to City Staff prior to the Conceptual Review meeting. The more information you are able to provide, the better feedback you are likely to get from the meeting. Generally, Conceptual Review works best after a brief conversation with a representative from the Zoning or Planning Department to first establish compliance with the permitted uses under the applicable zone district. Then a sketch plan or site plan is prepared that allows staff to review and provide comments on the land development aspects of the proposal. Please be aware that any information submitted may be considered a public record, and may be made available to anyone who requests it, including the media. The applicant acknowledges that that they are acting with the owner's consent.

Conceptual Reviews are scheduled on three Thursday mornings per month on a “first come, first served” basis. One 45 meeting is allocated per applicant and only three conceptual reviews are held each Thursday morning. Conceptual Review is a free service. Complete applications and sketch plans must be submitted to City Staff on Thursday, no later than end of day, two weeks prior to the meeting date. Application materials must be e-mailed to Y3VycmVudHBsYW5uaW5nQGZjZ292LmNvbQ==. If you do not have access to e-mail, other accommodations can be made upon request.

At Conceptual Review, you will meet with Staff from various City departments, including Community Development and Neighborhood Services (Zoning, Planning, and Development Review Engineering), Light and Power, Stormwater, Water/Waste Water, Transportation Planning and Poudre Fire Authority. Staff provides the applicant with comments to assist in preparing the detailed formal project application. There is no approval or denial of development proposals associated with Conceptual Review. The applicant will receive the comment letter at the review meeting.

Preliminary Design Reviews (PDR)

Preliminary design reviews offer an alternative process to the standard conceptual review for more complex or larger proposals requiring a greater level of collaboration and problem solving.

  • $500 application fee
  • Similar to a professional design charrette
  • Collaborative effort to address potential issues up front
  • May speed up development review

A more detailed submittal package is required, including: preliminary civil plans, site plans, renderings, photos of existing conditions on the site, and detailed project ideas.

City staff from various departments will research the site, offer comments, provide answers to specific questions and offer possible solutions to difficult design challenges.

For more information, visit Step 2 of the Development Review Guide.
