Electronic Permitting System
Step 6 - Decision  

After the application has been processed in accordance with the Land Development Code, a decision can be made.  Generally, an application may be approved, approved with conditions or denied.  When you are notified by e-mail that a decision has been made, please log in to your Active Review account to review Notes, Tasks and new files that have been added.  Most application approvals will require some minor follow up on the part of the Applicant to finalize the application such as signatures on documents, recording paper work, etc.

The Planning Director makes the decision on Administrative applications.  The Applicant or any party with standing to appeal (including citizens who have submitted written comments) has 30 calendar days from the date of the decision to appeal to the Board of County Commissioners.  That Appeal application will be submitted on line in SIRE Active Review  as an Application on the Submit list on the left side of the Active Review Home Page.  The Appeal hearing must be scheduled within 30 days of the Appeal submittal.  The Board of County Commissioners will make a decision considering all information submitted with the application and with the appeal.

Some application types have appeals boards separate from the Board of County Commissioners.  The Notice of Intent to Permit Access is appealed to the Access Board of Appeals.  This type of appeal will also be submitted online in SIRE Active Review  as an Application on the Submit list on the left side of the Active Review Home Page. 

Decisions are made by the Board of County Commissioners in public hearings.  A Board decision is appealed to the District Court and must be filed with the courts per Statute within 28 calendar days from the Board decision made on the date of the public hearing
