Always start with a Pre-application Review

Zoning Permit
This permit is required for any new business opening in Northglenn. Planning department staff will confirm the proposed use is compatible with existing zoning and will refer the application to other departments, which can provide guidance for next steps such as scheduling building life safety or fire inspections. 

Subdivision Review
A Subdivision allows for the division of a lot, tract or parcel of land into two or more lots, plats, sites or other divisions of land for the purpose, whether immediate or future, of sale or building development, whether residential, industrial, office, business, or other use.

Site Plan (Major and Minor) 
The Site Plan provides site and architectural information for decision-makers to consider when determining the appropriateness of an application for new development or redevelopment projects.

PD (Planned Development)
This is a zone district that may allow uses and standards not provided for or inadequately addressed in the City of Northglenn standard zone districts.  An application to rezone to PD requires a master site plan which must be in compliance with the Master Plan and regulations and requirements of other departments.

Rezoning of Property
This allows the landowner and developer an opportunity to establish a different zoning district with types and intensity of land uses that may be more appropriate for the surrounding area.

Wireless Service Facility
These are facilities associated with data and telecommunication services, including commercial mobile services, commercial mobile data services, unlicensed wireless services, and common carrier wireless exchange access services, as defined by federal law and regulations. This application will ensure zoning conformance prior to approval of building or right-of-way permits.
