In an effort to streamline the various processes within Community Development Services, the City has designed specific checklists to be completed and submitted with the required permit application forms. These checklists contain the minimum requirements to submit an application and there may be additional requirements that become apparent when the application is reviewed. However, we sincerely hope that these checklists will prevent our customers from having to make multiple trips to our office to provide additional information or documentation.
