Application Intake Meeting 

When you have your application and supporting documents ready to submit, you may contact city staff to schedule an Application Intake Meeting. This meeting is optional, but could be helpful in reducing review timelines, especially on large projects. On occasion, city staff may ask an applicant for an Application Intake Meeting.
