Land Use Applications & Checklists

Process for submitting Land Use applications

1. Schedule a pre-application meeting

  • Prior to developing in the City of Lafayette, please schedule a pre-application meeting.   Planned Unit Developments (PUDs) and Special Use Reviews require a pre-application conference. Pre-applications conferences are optional for other types of projects; however, we recommend meeting with staff prior to submitting most land use applications. The meeting will provide direction on necessary applications, plan sets, studies, the process, and general timeline.
  • Please complete the Pre-Application Conference Form
