What is a Pre Application Meeting or “PAM” and why is it required?
A Pre Application Meeting (PAM) is an informal conference between key City staff and those proposing to file an entitlement application on a property. The Pre Application Meeting is intended to: 1) inform applicants and their representatives of the entitlement process, specifically in terms of processing time and cost; 2) identify any issues that may arise during the entitlement process before significant time and expense is made by the applicant and City staff; and 3) introduce applicants and their representatives to key City staff. The PAM, if utilized effectively, ensures an efficient entitlement process and significantly increases the chances of a project getting to “Yes.”
