Planning makes every effort to stay on schedule per the Planning Submittal Calendar; however, please expect delays in the review and approval process.  We understand every application anticipates urgent attention, but due to a large number of new and ongoing projects, combined with being temporarily understaffed, delays are being realized.  Planning asks for your patience and staff will work as expeditiously as possible to keep your project on schedule.  We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience and expect that this situation will be temporary for the next 2-3 months.
