Frequently Asked Questions

Do I Have to Submit Documents to Multiple Departments or People?

No! You will have one primary point of contact (your designated planner) and will submit everything online through eTRAKiT. You will be guided through the process.

How Long Does the Development Review Process Take?

It depends on your project(s), responsiveness, and a few other factors. Typically, from start to finish, development review takes 18 to 30 weeks (not including pre-application or neighborhood meetings).

Who is My Contact During My Development Review?

Your designated planner. You will have access to representatives from multiple City departments, but will have a planner assigned to your review to help you navigate the process. Should the need arise, the Directors of Community Development and Public Works will also be available to you.

Which Laws Should I Know?

It depends on your development, but in general you should be familiar with the City’s Land Development Code (LDC) and Engineering Code of Standards and Specifications.

I Have Multiple Development Projects in the City of Arvada. Can I Submit Them at the Same Time?

Yes. Each project (not developer) undergoes an individual development review process.
