A Type II Application is submitted for some proposals that allow discretion in reviewing the standards that apply. Property owners within 750 feet are given notice, and may participate in the review. The decision is issued by county staff. It may be appealed to a hearings officer.

A Type III Application is submitted for other proposals that allow discretion in reviewing the standards that apply. Adjacent property owners are given notice and allowed to participate in the review. Notice is posted on the property and a public hearing is held. The decision is issued by the hearing officer, and can be appealed to the Land Use Board of Appeals.

Multiple permits may be included under a single Type II or III application.

Before You Submit

Please begin with our Ask a Planner form. Our Planner on Duty will contact you in the order in which your application or request was received. The planner on duty will briefly go over your plan with you, and let you know what permits are required and what type of application to submit.

For a Type II application, you will be required to have a Pre-Filing (PF) Meeting before submitting your application. For a Type III application, you will be required to have a Pre-Application (PA) Meeting before you submit. The checklist you receive at this meeting will guide you in preparing your application.

Submitting Your Application

You are ready to submit your Type II or III Application if:

  • You have attended a Pre-Filing or Pre-Application Meeting within the last six months 

  • You have followed all the instructions in your PA/PF checklist

  • You have all the required documents listed below and on your PA/PF checklist

Required documents for all Type II or III applications:

  • Site Plan

  • Elevation and Floor Plan Drawings

Refer to your PA or PF checklist as you prepare these documents. It will probably call for other documents as well, depending on your permit types. Always make sure to follow the checklist.

All documents must be submitted in digital form. Plans must be drawn to scale, either engineering or architect.

If you have followed your checklist and have all your required documents, you may submit your plan by email to LUP-submittals@multco.us.
