A community’s development approval process should project it is a choice, business oriented locale. Does your community’s development review accomplish your community standards? This presentation describes the components of development review process which is fair, effective and efficient. This presentation will cover 6 steps of good plan review starting with early consultation with developers to inspection and process evaluation. Developers object to an approval process that is lengthy or unpredictable: in otherwords costly and risky. Citizens want development approval which is consistent and accomplishes community objectives expressed in regulation. A site plan will be used to illustrate how a well designed process ensures predictability, achievement of good design and successful economic development.
