Request a Planning Consultation

Lakewood Planner working at the Planner of the Day counter.

For simple development proposals or general planning questions, please contact the Planner of the Day. The Planner of the Day is available during business hours to answer general planning and zoning questions and will determine if your project requires any discretionary planning review. 

The purpose of the initial consultation is to ensure you have access to the information you will need to proceed with your development proposal. Consultations are required for site development proposals, except single-family homes and duplexes. Click the dropdown below to schedule a meeting.
