Take the Neighborhood Meeting Participant Questionnaire

Have you ever attended a neighborhood meeting? These informal listening sessions are designed for development proposal applicants to hear questions and comments from the public before they submit their formal application to the City. Staff want to learn how your experience was as a participant and how these meetings could be improved. Please only take the survey if you have participated in a neighborhood meeting in the past. Feel free to email the Development Review Liaison at if you have questions.

Residents' Role in Development Review

The Development Review process has several ways for residents to get involved from the beginning of a proposal to the end:

  • Attend the conceptual design review or preliminary design review to learn more about what the proposal includes at the start
  • Attend the neighborhood meeting to ask questions and make comments about the proposal before it is formally submitted
  • View the formal submission documents in our public records archive at
  • Attend the public hearing where the proposal will be either approved or denied and make public comment to aid the decisionmaker(s)
  • Filing an appeal to City Council to modify the final decision if necessary
