New Sign Posting Procedure


Effective April 1, 2022, the Planning Department implemented new sign templates for on-site postings of development applications. In addition, the Planning Department will be partnering with TIMSCO to create the signs that will be available for purchase by applicants. The information about how and what to include on the signs will still come from the Planning Department.  


  • Look for new sign designs for development applications in your neighborhood  
  • The information on the sign will remain the same 
  • Contact Planning Department staff at the contact information provided on the sign for more information 


  • The Planning Department will no longer provide the signs 
  • Color Pro will provide the physical sign 
  • Planning Department will coordinate with Applicant and Color Pro to ensure signs are created correctly 
Neighborhood Meetings 

Neighborhood meetings give citizens an opportunity to learn about potential projects in their neighborhood and to help inform the planning process before projects begin in the County. Pre-application neighborhood meetings are particularly encouraged for informal communication before submitting any application requiring a public hearing in accordance with Section 27-3600. 

Days and Times

Meetings will be held at or after 6:00 p.m. on a weekday or between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. on a weekend at a location that is convenient and generally accessible to neighbors residing in proximity to the land subject to the proposed application. 


Notice of the meeting will be mailed to neighbors at least 30 days before the meeting.
