Preliminary Application Conference (PAC)

*Please note that all PAC meetings are currently being held virtually. A link to connect via Google Meet will be provided when the meeting is confirmed.*

Who should schedule a PAC?

Potential applicants that have already contacted the Planner on Duty, or another staff member regarding a potential project, and have been recommended by staff to schedule a PAC.

What is discussed at a PAC?  

Applicants submit process questions and technical questions for staff regarding a specific property or a specific use on a property.  Preparing questions in advance of the meeting helps staff to have answers ready at the Preliminary Application Conference.

When are PACs held?  When do I need to schedule?

Preliminary Application Conferences are held on Wednesdays in one hour time slots from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.  Meetings are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis, and must be submitted online by Tuesday at 5:00 p.m. the week prior to be considered for the following week’s meetings.

Where are PACs held?

Preliminary Application Conferences are held at Brighton City Hall, located at 500 S. 4th Avenue, Brighton, CO  80601.  They are held in the Community Development Department located on the Second Floor.  As you arrive at City Hall, please check in at the front desk and sign in.

Why do I need to schedule a PAC?

A Preliminary Application Conference provides the opportunity to find out information about a development site that you may not already know.  Staff will provide information about infrastructure requirements to develop a site, the potential responsibility to reimburse Brighton or other entities for previously-constructed infrastructure, fee structures, etc.  Brighton staff highly recommends taking the time to have a PAC meeting prior to submitting any land use application.
