Regular DCLU customers who qualify as Consistently Prepared
Applicants (CPAs) can now skip the appointment process for certain
types of projects and simply drop off application packages by
taking advantage of a new drop-off submittal pilot program.
All interested customers are encouraged to test this pilot
program, which has been extended through at least February 28,
2003 in order to obtain a larger sampling of applications.
Application rejections during the pilot program will not count
against a customers CPA status. Drop-off submittals are
allowed for new single family and small multifamily building
plans. Multifamily applications must be under SEPA thresholds,
three stories or less, of conventional wood frame construction,
and without structural irregularities. Other projects that may
be dropped off include Short Plats, Lot Boundary Adjustments,
and minor telecommunications devices.
Drop-off submittals require an intake checklist and a fee worksheet.
For details, read out new Client Assistance Memo (CAM) #121,
which outlines the criteria for CPA submittals. If you prefer,
a printed copy is available from the DCLU Public
Resource Center, located on the 20th floor of Key Tower
at 700 Fifth Avenue, (206) 684-8467.
A new CAM series that explains the qualifications and procedures
for Drop-Off Submittals will be finalized after the pilot period
