Development review team to review proposals submitted to county

The Development Review Team is a pre-application meeting designed to work through all aspects of a specific development proposal prior to submittal to the county.

This will help ensure efficient coordination of development services through effective use of staff time, consistent technical interpretation and quality decision making, which is essential to the success of a project

We have been meeting with potential developers and they all applaud the county’s efforts to coordinate the development process for the unincorporated areas of Grand County because it allows them to sit down with the county engineer, the chief building official and the planning division to hear comments regarding their project at the same time.

DRT is comprised of a cross section of the county’s key staff members, including the Community Development Director, County Planners, Building Plans Examiners, Road and Bridge staff, representatives from Fire Districts and other staff as needed.

The ultimate goal is for staff and the developer to identify and resolve any issues before a development application is submitted.

The ideal implementation of DRT occurs when the developer’s team of professionals (architect, owner, civil engineer, and project liaison, etc.) provides a complete development plan and plan application.

We anticipate that many complex planning and development questions can be answered early on and result in greater efficiencies and effective results.
