The development process has been revised to produce a more streamlined approach to the review of development plans. The attached processes outline the development process when preliminary and final plats are filed simultaneously or separately. Revisions to the development approval process will achieve the following goals:
- To ensure that all planning and engineering issues are resolved before a preliminary plat is approved, it is proposed that all issues would be resolved and approved by the Farmington Planning Commission before the preliminary plat is forwarded to the Farmington City Council for approval.
- That city staff will have the professional discretion to determine the suitability and appropriateness of the information requested and submitted to accurately and prudently review development plans.
- That the proposed development will meet all city standards and provide an asset to the community.
To ensure that the development process is effective and timely, it is important to understand that both the city and the developer are responsible for certain issues effecting the process. Please review the following responsibilities to ensure that the process is a positive experience for all affected parties.
