A Pre-Application Conference is a required meeting with the staff in the Department of Planning and Zoning for any applicants wishing to apply for a Legislative Land Use Application.
Scheduling a Pre-Application Conference
As of August 31, 2018, the Department of Planning and Zoning is accepting electronic requests for Pre-Application Conferences. Please fill out our online request form and follow the instructions.
Should you need any assistance contact the Department of Planning and Zoning Customer Service Center at 703-777-0246.
When the Department of Planning and Zoning has received the necessary information, the applicant will be notified of the date and time of the Pre-Application Conference.
During the conference the applicant will receive an overview of the materials needed to submit an application, a description of the process from planners from different specialties. Along with this, the planners will comment on the proposal and make informal recommendations should the applicant/representative decide to go forward with the submission of an application.
