The time needed to process an MDP varies, depending on the complexity and scale of the proposal. Most other Comprehensive Plan amendment requests can be processed in about 10 weeks. However, MDPs require more review and analysis. Generally, an MDP may be processed in about 3 months or less, from the time of submittal. Please note that a considerable amount of time may be required of an applicant prior to submittal for the preparation of an MDP, a pre-application meeting with planning staff, and public participation.
