Requests for Information / Lot determination

Please be advised that many requests for whether a property is able to be developed is often more complex than a yes or no.  These requests will require more information from you than just a location and the Planning and  Zoning Staff may need time to do  conduct the necessary research to address the inquiry.

 In order for you to determine the feasibility of development, you may need to have the property researched and evaluated by professionals, such as a Land Use Attorney,  Civil/Site Engineer, Land Surveyor, or an Architect.
