2020 Changes: Most Development Applications (marked with a blue letter E a-e-logo-png-4) moved to an online electronic process via eTRAKiT in 2020 and those paper applications will no longer be available nor accepted. The scheduling of pre-application meetings has also moved to this online format.*** 

Pre-Application Meeting 

A pre-application meeting is required before submittal of a formal land application and benefits the applicant by giving them the opportunity to present basic information to staff representatives from the Community Development, Public Works, and Fire Departments. The applicant will receive general comments on the feasibility of the plan, the process(es), submittal requirements and fees required to process and review the plan.

To request a pre-application meeting, applicants should log in to the Littleton eTRAKiT Portal. Staff will review the meeting request and schedule the pre-application meeting. Pre-Application meetings are scheduled on a first come, first served basis. Meetings are held on Thursday mornings at either 9:00 a.m. or 10:00 a.m. and are limited to one hour. The applicant and the project contacts will receive an emailed meeting invitation with additional details regarding meeting location or instructions for a virtual meeting.

Preliminary Project Plan Process (P4) 

Applicants requesting a new Planned Development or an amendment to a Planned Development may be eligible for a Preliminary Project Plan Process (P4) review before planning commission and city council. These non-binding discussions must be scheduled after a pre-application meeting and prior to formal application submittal. Eligibility for the P4 review will be determined during the Pre-Application meeting. These requests are scheduled on a first come, first served basis. To request a P4 review, applicants should log in to the Littleton eTRAKiT Portal. 

Development Applications

The Land Development Application moved to an online submittal process in 2020. Development applications marked with the blue letter E (a-e-logo-png-4) will only be accepted through the new online Building Permit and Development Review System, eTRAKiT.
