File a Land Use Review Extension

Learn how to file an extension of the 120-day review period. Use this form to request an extension of the 120-day review period for up to an additional 245 days.

State law requires the City to issue a final decision on land use reviews within 120 days of receiving a complete application. State law also allows the applicant to request in writing an extension of the 120-day review period for up to an additional 245 days.

When extensions are requested, it is important to ensure that there is adequate time to accommodate the required public review, drafting the decision, and any required hearings (including appeals) within the extended review period. Generally, a final decision must be rendered approximately 60 days prior to the end of the review period in order to accommodate appeals.

If requesting an extension of the 120-day review period, please sign this form and return it to the Development Services planner assigned to your case.
