—Effective July 2, 2012: Free Land Use Coaching Services will be Reinstated
DPD will offer FREE coaching with a land use planner on all development proposals up to 20 minutes starting Monday, July 2.
In October 2010, DPD reduced this service in order to balance application intake and review workloads while maintaining core services of permit review, issuance and inspections.
However, after seeing modest but steady increases in both construction permit volume and revenue, DPD has been able to bring back several land use planners to help maintain review times while also providing coaching resources to the public.
In addition to offering free coaching services, DPD will also offer paid coaching appointments for up to one hour with a land use planner or geotechnical engineer. The free, yet limited, online Land Use Q&A Service will be available for those who are unable to visit the Applicant Services Center during normal business hours.
