Stage 3 - Application Submittal

About Stage 3

Stage 3 of the development process starts once an applicant has received the Technical Review Team Report from the Technical Review Team (TRT). The applicant can begin to submit the necessary materials, as specified, to the Permit Granting Authority (PGA), as shown in the figure below. If permits are required from different boards, the sequence and timing of submittals will be noted on the TRT Report.

Upon receipt of the application package, the PGA shall review the application package for completeness in accordance with the PGA’s submittal requirements. Once the PGA deems an application package complete, the application package will be filed with the City Clerk and Project Review (Stage 4) will commence.
