The Expedited Processing Section (EPS) provides the public with a more efficient alternative for processing planning entitlement applications. Using EPS reduces the time it takes to advance a case to a hearing or decision maker by 30 to 50 percent.
Only certain types of projects qualify for EPS’s services. Prior to filing, applicants must submit a Pre-Intake Consultation form to verify eligibility. EPS welcomes applications for affordable housing, multifamily (apartments, condominiums, and small lot homes), and non-residential (hotels, office, schools, commercial, and industrial) projects.
