Application Submittal for Technical Review

An intake meeting is required for all application submittals and the meeting must be scheduled at least one week in advance. To schedule the intake meeting please submit an e-mail with the application and supporting documents as a PDF attachment or a link. Send e-mail to planning_dl@cityoffortpierce.com.

 At the intake meeting, it will be determined if the submitted materials meet all the requirements necessary for the department to accept. If the application is missing items, an explanation will be given regarding what is missing and how to correct it. All applications must pass sufficiency review by 5:00 PM on the last Friday of each month to advance to the next month’s Technical Review Committee meeting. The deadline to submit all application fees and hard copies for the project is two business days after the sufficiency deadline. Applications cannot move forward to the Technical Review Committee until all fees are paid and hard copies are given.

All hard copies can be mailed to 100 N. US Highway 1, Ft. Pierce, FL 34950, Attention: Planning Department, or schedule an appointment with your assigned planner to drop off at City Hall. Lastly, fees can either be paid electronically or by check. If you would like to pay electronically provide the name exactly as it appears on your credit card and an email address to send the invoice link to. Checks can either be mailed or dropped off with the hard copies of the submittal.
