Statement: It’s easy for developers to get their projects approved in Scottsdale.
Fact: Scottsdale has established rigorous standards for design and development projects:
- Scottsdale’s design and architectural guidelines include the Design Standards and Policy Manual (DSPM) developed by local architects, the city, community members and other stakeholders and the Citywide Design Standards Overview.
- To submit a new proposal, the developer must complete the Development Application Checklist, and provide required documents.
- Applicants need to conform with Scottsdale’s revised code including the zoning ordinance, the city’s design standards and other stipulations. The process includes a series of reviews with the city, community members and other stakeholders.
- After the application has met the checklist’s criteria, the documents go to the Development Review Board (DRB) at a public meeting to review, discuss and determine if all requirements were met.
- If criteria are met, the DRB recommends the application go forward to the Planning Commission for additional reviews before being sent to City Council.
