Process

The Department of Planning and Zoning is responsible for administering the application process for a Certificate of Adequate Public Facilities, with support from each director or department responsible for the applicable facilities. An application for a Certificate of Adequate Public Facilities is made in conjunction with an application for site design review and approval of a Major Site Design Plan or Planned Development.

The Department of Planning and Zoning then refers the application to the departments responsible for review of the applicable facilities. Each reviewing department is responsible for evaluating a project and making written findings that the facilities are adequate for a proposed project; the facilities will be adequate for a proposed project because the project is in compliance with the provisions of Chapter 22.28, or the facilities are inadequate for a project

In determining the adequacy or inadequacy of public facilities, departments responsible for the applicable facilities shall take into consideration the following:

  • Residential, commercial, and mixed use development and approved development existing within the City, as applicable.
  • Proposed projects, as applicable, for which a Certificate of Adequate Public Facilities has been issued under this title.
  • The proposed project for which an application for a Certificate of Adequate Public Facilities has been applied.
  • The Capital Improvement Program, including projected facilities, the Comprehensive Plan, and any other land use conditions that the Director of Planning and Zoning may reasonably prescribe to be considered by the departments.
