When you begin to put together your application submittal packet use your pre-application conference report and the application handout checklist as a guide.
The most important part of your pre-application report is this section.
Pay close attention to these gray sections. They outline required items, additional items, and exceptions.
Exceptions: Besides the list in your pre-app report, you may receive emails from staff about other items that will not be required. Any emails you receive from a planner, biologist, or engineer allowing an exception to a submittal requirement must be included in your application packet.
Timing your environmental applications
- Habitat and wetland pre-determinations must be completed prior to submitting your preliminary application
- Habitat and wetland permits can be submitted with your preliminary packet
When you bring your application submittal packet to the Permit Center a permit technician will review your materials for these items:
- Cover sheet and table of contents
- Application form
- Application fee
- Pre-application conference report
- Developer's GIS packet
Follow these tips:
- Diligently follow the checklist in the application handout
- Include staff email if an exception is not noted in pre-app report
- Use a separate form for each application
- Check for additional submittal requirements in pre-app report
- Wetland and habitat predeterminations need to be completed before application submittal
- Archeological pre-determination report is separate
Each project is different. Use your pre-application conference report in conjunction with the application handout submittal checklist for an efficient application submittal.
