  • assist the applicant in identifying any public sources of information that may aid the application;
  • review the compatibility with adjacent land uses; and
  • provide general assistance by City staff.

Before submitting an application, contact the Current Planning division at (816) 325-7415 to determine whether a pre-application meeting will be required and to schedule a meeting.
