Subdivision Tips

Following these seven tips will help us to process your development application more efficiently:

  1. Familiarize yourself with the review process.
  2. Submit a complete application with accurate information.
  3. Keep a record of your file number and quote it whenever you contact us.
  4. Keep in mind that it may take you several weeks or months to complete your application requirements, depending on the complexity of the project.
  5. Keep a record of approvals, correspondence and decisions from meetings.
  6. Minimize deviations from established development policies or standards. Remember that the more your proposal differs from established policy or standards, the more time it will take to process.
  7. If a proposal needs to be revised in order to meet city policies or standards, provide all the required revisions in one submission. To expedite the review process, provide a cover letter explaining how each of the outstanding issues has been addressed. If you have questions about staff comments or requirements,  please contact staff before resubmittal.
