Depending on the size and scale of your project, it may be to your advantage to have the Building Commissioner schedule a meeting for you with the PAC. The Building Commissioner shall call together the PAC within fourteen (14) days of receipt of your application. You will be asked to bring certain information including a concept site plan. A fully engineered plan with utilities is not needed. The PAC was created to help streamline the application and review process by performing a preliminary staff review of proposed projects. The Building Commissioner or Designee acts as a coordinator for projects reviewed by the PAC and is responsible for Agenda/scheduling the meetings.
