Project Review Committee

The Project Review Committee (PRC) is an advisory committee made up of the City’s five core departments and the leadership staff members under each, totaling nine City appointed staff. The purpose of the PRC is to provide input to the Zoning Administrator on land development project that are located in the City’s Gateway Zoning District, which is governed by the form-based code. As an advisory committee, the PRC has no official role in the administration of the form-based code, but can provide insights as to changes, modifications, or considerations that should be accounted for when land developments are proposed. Ultimately, the Zoning Administrator will determine if a project meets the requirements of the code and can be issued a zoning permit, or need to seek relief from the Development Review Board.
