In order to take advantage of this program, developers will have to undertake a five-step process. First, developers must seek out certified Peer Reviewers from the county website or the county office. Second, developers must work with Peer Reviewers over the course of developing an application. Third, developers must either get approval for their plans from the Peer Reviewer or make the changes that the Peer Reviewer suggests. Fourth, developers must submit Peer Reviewed and approved plans to the county under the Expedited Commercial Plan Review Program, at which point the application will receive the highest priority. Finally, the developer must make any revisions suggested by the county in response to the application and collect the license upon approval.
As a reminder, the Council for Quality Growth staff and members of the development community were asked by Deputy Chief Operating Officer Luz Borrero to sit on a Stakeholders Group and provide input as the County began the process of permit reform. The 25-member roster of the Stakeholders Group includes 14 members of the Council for Quality Growth.
