Prior to the formal submittal of your Entitlement Application, you may request a preliminary project review. A One Stop Review is a preliminary, multi-disciplinary review of potential development projects. This provides applicants with early insight from City departments into key topics such as development requirements and fees.
The One Stop Review fee is credited toward your Entitlement fees at formal submittal.
Application Submittal Requirements
*This chart shows the requirements for a typical project. Submittal requirements may vary on a project-specific basis.
An OTC project will usually involve pools/spas, solar, patio covers, zoning referrals, tenant improvements, signs/banners, fences, and landscaping. These permits are processed at the Permit Center at no cost.
*Temporary banners require a fee. Refer to the Fee Schedule.
