All applications that require public meetings/hearings and all Site Plans/Amendments will still be required to follow the Pre-Application and Intake meetings process in accordance with Article 5 of Wellington’s Land Development Regulations (LDR).
Per Section 5.2.2.C of Wellington’s LDR, all applications that require public meetings/hearings and all SitePlans/Amendments shall be required to schedule a pre-application meeting with the Development Review Manager (DM) prior to the in-take meeting. The DM will determine if other department representatives should be in attendance for the pre-application meeting based on the type of application. To schedule aPre-Application meeting, contact Jennifer Fritz at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 561-791-4000. A Pre-Application summary will be prepared by the DM and be provided to the applicant within five (5) business days. This summary shall be included in the submittal.
Per Section 5.2.2.D of the LDR, all applications that require public meetings/hearings and all Site Plans/Amendments shall be required to schedule an In-take meeting to submit the applications. The applicant shall review one (1) full set of documents with the DM prior to the electronic submittal. This can be in the form of an in-person meeting, email, drop-box, GoTo meeting, etc., as determined by the DM. Once the intake meeting has occurred, the DM will notify the applicant, via email, if the application is sufficient to upload and submit. The applicant MUST upload the approval email/correspondence from the DM when submitting the application (Plan). If an application (Plan) is not sufficient for submittal, it will be returned to the applicant, in its entirety, for corrections and a new in-take meeting will be required.
