What is Eagle's land use and hearing process?

Prior to Submittal: 

Two events must occur before the City accepls an application. 

  1. Pre-application Meeting: Meeting with City Staff to discuss city requirements, and 
  2. Neighborhood Meeting: Meeting with property owners within 300 feet of project site. (The City is not part of nor does it attend this meeting.) 

Step 1: Application Submittal

Applicant schedules a meeting with staff to submit materials & fees. The City will create a file. This is the 1st time the City has the application materials. 

Step 2: Agency Transmission and Staff Review

Staff sends the application to agencies for comment and recommendations. Staff review the application and creates a staff report based on the City Comprehensive Plan and City Code. The staff report is available 5 to 7 days before the hearing. 

Step 3: Public Notification

A minimum of 15-days before hearing a letter is to sent property owners within 300-ft. of the site and notice is published in the newspaper explaining the request, as well as, the date, lime, & location of the hearing. The site is posted 10- days before the hearing. 

Step 4: P&Z Commission Hearing

The applicant and the public share their reasons for approval or denial. The commission’s decision is a recommendation to the City Council. The commission will issue written findings of fact based on the public hearing, comprehensive plan, and City code. 

Step 5: Public Notification Again

A repeat the public notification process from Step 3 but with City Council hearing date, time & location. 

Step 6: City Council Hearing

The applicant and the public share their reasons for approval or denial. The City Council can approve, deny, or send back to the P&Z Commission or staff for additional work. The City Council will issue written findings of fact based on the public hearing, comprehensive plan, and City code. Findings are customarily adopted at a separate meeting on the Council’s consent agenda. 

On to the Design Review Process...

All land uses (aside from a single home or 2-family homes) are subject to the Eagle Design Review Process prior to development or construction.
