Building and Development

The Engineering Department has implemented a regular presubmittal meeting to provide assistance at any phase of development prior to plan review submittal.  Presubmittal meetings are required in many cases primarily for non-residential projects that involve site and/or utility construction but they are also appropriate for due diligence, site feasibility investigations and other general planning purposes.  Please email our office to determine if a presubmittal meeting should be done for your research or project.
