Planning Department

The planning department oversees residential, commercial, and industrial development within the city limits. The planning staff serves to administer the City's comprehensive plan and zoning and subdivision ordinances. Staff reviews all site plans for commercial, industrial, and multi-family residential development.

Planning staff provides support to the Sublimity Planning Commission and City Council. The planning commission reviews and approves conditional use permits, variances, and minor partitions. In addition, the planning commission also reviews and makes recommendations to the city council for all annexations, comprehensive plan amendments, rezones, subdivisions, subdivision replats, and major partitions. In addition to supporting the planning commission, the planning staff administratively approves all site plans and minor variances.

The planning commission meets on the last Monday of each month. All applications must be submitted to the planning department at least one month prior to the desired planning commission meeting. Staff recommends that persons interested in submitting an application for any of the above-listed procedures visit the City Hall and consult with staff prior to submitting an application.
