How Will I Know If A Project Is Proposed Near Me?
This site provides information about development review proposals at all stages of the process. Property owners within at least an 800-foot radius (or a greater distance in accordance with the standards outlined in the Land Use Code) of the boundaries of the parcel are notified via US Postal Service of any neighborhood meetings and hearings for development review proposals. Additionally, a notice is placed in The Coloradoan and a sign is posted on the property when a formal application has been submitted, or earlier, if a neighborhood meeting is planned.
This service is provided to keep community members informed about potential development projects and related policy discussions. To receive a weekly email of the content of this page, please enter your email in the box to the right.
Information on current development proposals is available online. Check out the searchable and sortable table of development proposals under review to find information on formally submitted proposals. You can search for a proposal by the sign number on a "Development Proposal Under Review" sign; or by a keyword search including any part of the project name, street name or number; and more.
Conceptual or preliminary design reviews are the first step in the review process, where applicants can determine the feasibility of a potential project prior to a possible formal submittal. Preliminary design reviews go into more detail than conceptual reviews. Some projects will move forward into the formal development review process; others will not.
There are two Conceptual Design Reviews scheduled for October 16:
Neighborhood meetings provide an opportunity for developers to provide preliminary information to neighbors regarding proposed projects before they are formally submitted for review. Neighbors then have the opportunity to provide feedback and/or ask the developer questions about the project as proposed.
There are no neighborhood meetings scheduled at this time.
