The Silverthorne Planning Department strives to provide a review process that is timely, efficient, and thorough. Final decision on most Planning applications is made by the Town Council, with careful consideration of recommendations made by the Planning Commission. Applications that require the approval of Planning Commission and Town Council include all subdivisions and plats, rezoning, annexations, commercial and residential site plans, as well as conditional use permits and variances. Large Planned Unit Developments (PUD), Residential Subdivisions, and Site Plans require formal review at the Preliminary and Final stages. The process is designed to provide opportunity for citizen input at any stage, particularly during Community Meetings and Public Hearings.
Less complex applications follow a streamlined process at the Staff level only. Applications that are processed at the staff level include building permits for single family homes, small projects, tenant finishes, minor exterior alterations, and home occupation permits. In addition, sign permits and Comprehensive Sign Plans are processed at the staff level.
