Approval Process

Reviews are broken into two sections:

  1. Completeness Review -- The application and appeals process begins with the initial application submittal followed by a completeness review. Information required at initial submittal is listed by application type on the completeness checklists. Time limits for completeness review vary by application type and are also listed on the application checklist. An application is determined to be complete if the application form, required fee(s) and all applicable supporting documents have been submitted to and received by the City. The applicant is notified when an application is determined complete or if additional information is required.
  2. Compliance Review -- Following a determination of completeness, application information and project plans are reviewed by City staff for compliance with applicable provisions of the development code. Time limits for compliance review vary by application type and are listed on the application checklist. If additional information or revised plan submittals are necessary, the applicant is notified. An application is determined to be in compliance when it meets all applicable City policies, regulations and provisions of the North Augusta Development Code.
