Project Management Program



Project Management Program 

PDS offers limited Project Management services for customers whose projects meet specific criteria. A project may consist of a number of permits or approvals, and may involve review by other City departments or outside agencies.

If a project is accepted into the program, a Project Manager will oversee the project throughout the entire development review process, from Planning approvals to Certificate of Occupancy.  

  • Multi-Disciplinary Team
    A Multi-Disciplinary Team will be assigned to the project. Team members could include representatives from Current Planning, Design Review, Subdivisions, Plan Review, Fire, Public Works and a multitude of other disciplines. The Project Manager will select the team based on the scope of the specific project.
  • Early Assistance Meetings
    Applicants are required to attend at least one Early Assistance meeting. Early Assistance meetings are structured to identify required applications, project timelines and any major issues and possible alternative solutions prior to application submittal. One or more Early Assistance meetings may be held with varying team members.
