Development Process

Simplifying The Process

During the May 15, 2018 City Council Meeting, the Mayor and City Council amended City Code 19.13.04 to help expedite the process amid the extreme growth in Saratoga Springs. The following changes were approved:

  • Site plan now approved by Planning Commission (previously City Council).
  • Preliminary plats in the District Area Plan (DAP) are approved by staff, if a lotting plan is included in the Village Plan.
  • Preliminary plats no longer require a public hearing, which coincides with State Code.
  • Planned Unit Development (PUD) concept plans are approved (non-binding) by staff, unless variations are requested, in which case the City Council approves (non-binding).
  • PUD preliminary plat public hearings were eliminated, which coincides with State Code.
  • PUD final plats are approved by staff, if consistent with the City Council approved preliminary plat.
