A Pre-Development Meeting is mandatory for all projects requiring a Conditional Use Permit, Subdivision (over 4 lots), General Plan Amendment, Rezone, or Specific Plan prior to submittal of an Environmental Questionnaire, which is the first step in processing a new development application in the unincorporated areas of Placer County. A voluntary Pre-Development Meeting can also be requested for other permits such as Variances, Parcel Maps, Minor Use Permits, etc.
The purpose of the Pre-Development Meeting is to improve communication between the project applicant and County staff and to eliminate the repetitive review cycles that could otherwise occur during the environmental review process. The Pre-Devleopment Meeting is designed to inform the applicant about the technical studies and information required before an Environmental Questionnaire will be accepted for filing.
1. Applicant completes the Predevelopment Meeting Request Form and submits it along with a detailed project description, conceptual site plan, and the required fee to Environmental Coordination Services. The site plan must be 8½" x 11" (or folded to that size).
2. County schedules the Pre-Development Meeting within 2-4 weeks of application submittal.
3. County will provide the applicant with detailed checklists from all relevant land use departments below noting the technical information and special studies required to submit a Environmental Questionnaire. Supplemental Information will be provided describing the level of detail required.
