The Littleton Center reopened on May 18 with a phased approach that includes very limited public access. Building and Development staff continue to operate remotely and will maintain as many business operations as possible, but will not be open to walk-ins. There will be no Rapid Residential Review until further notice.
Staff may be reached by phone or email and virtual meetings may be pre-arranged via email with the individual staff member. General planning and zoning questions for the Planner on Call may be emailed to DRT@littletongov.org. If a virtual appointment is not possible, please review these guidelines and call 720-306-1606.
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 complete a pre-application meeting request form.
**Pre-Application meetings are scheduled on a first come, first served basis via e-mail. Please note, demand for a meeting ebbs and flows -- scheduling for pre-application meetings could be 2-3 weeks out.**
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.

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 complete a preliminary project plan process (P4) application form.
