The voice of business is being heard.


Please Note: there are two lines of text that would be removed under this amendment. Both pertain to capacity reservations and minor site plan review. This amendment would eliminate the need for a minor site plan review where a proposal, typically a tenant improvement, would necessitate a capacity reservation certificate (CRC) for transportation, water, or sewer. The CRC would then be processed concurrent with the building permit, saving time and cost for the applicant. A minor site plan review is a land-use permit and not necessary.
