Technical Review Committee (TRC)


The Technical Review Committee (TRC) is a multi-departmental staff committee that has the responsibility to review and decide specific land development applications and to make recommendations on various other department applications.


Meetings are generally held every Wednesday at 9:30 a.m. in the third floor conference room of the Municipal Building at 211 S. Hamilton Street.


TRC staff is comprised of department heads or their designees from the Planning & Development, Transportation, Public Services and Engineering Services Departments. Representatives from other City departments, such as Police, Fire, Electric Utilities, and Parks and Recreation; private utility companies; and public or private school systems, may also provide comments on applications.

Guidebook of Standards and Practices for Development

The TRC created the Guidebook of Standards and Practices for Development (PDF) to provide applicants with information on the City's standards and practices in the review of land development plans. (Please note that the guidebook is currently being updated; so please consult the Planning & Development Department in regard to applicable provisions.)


The TRC reviews and decides applications for preliminary subdivisions, group development plans, site plans, easement reconveyances, below ground right-of-way encroachments, and minor watershed variances. It reviews and makes recommendations on applications for planned developments, above ground right-of-way encroachments, street abandonments, voluntary annexations, major watershed variances, city infrastructure projects, and construction that may impact city infrastructure.
