Landowners and developers in Mesa County now have a faster, easier application process to request changes in how their property is used.
The Planning Division has gone live with its new online system that allows applicants to submit their requests, and get real-time updates on the review process.
The paperless system will make life much easier on Mesa County residents who used to have to go through several hoops in order to file the same application.
In the past, the majority of time and money was used for printing out extensive application packets, something residents will no longer have to deal with online.
"We accept multiple application packets, usually anywhere from 15 to 20 for each application, and all those have to be reproduced and packaged up and put in order and submitted to the county," said Linda Dannenberger, Planning Division director for Mesa County.
Most applications will only take you a few minutes to submit online.
The new process can be used for all development applications, including minor site plans, subdivisions, rezone requests, right-of-way vacation requests and conditional use permits.
If you have questions about the online application process, you can call (970) 244-1636 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
