Planning Prescreen and Preliminary Completeness Review

Planning land use applications are subject to prescreen and preliminary completeness review, which is a preliminary review to ensure proper file naming standards of your electronic files, and for minimum submittal requirements for your specific land use application.

If corrections are needed to your file names, you will be notified by ProjectDox of the corrections needed, and you will be asked to upload the files again with the correct file naming standards. Your Case File Planner will work with you to delete the files with incorrect file names (remember, you can only delete files during the initial Applicant Upload task, and not after you have completed the task. See "Uploading Your Files" for instructions for deleting files.)

If the Case File Planner reviewing your application finds that your application submittal does not meet the minimum submittal requirements pursuant to applicable regulations, your application may be deemed incomplete. You will be notified by ProjectDox of the corrections needed, and in addition, a letter detailing the incomplete items will be mailed to you.

Prescreen Rejection

If your submittal requirements were not complete, you will receive a “Prescreen Correction Request Task Assignment” e-mail notification that prescreening has been denied and corrections are needed similar to the screen below.
