 COVID19 Announcement: 

DRT meetings are not being scheduled at this time. As soon as we are able to resume this service we will do so.

We appreciate your patience and understanding,  

Community and Development Services Department Team


The City of Salina’s Development Review Team (DRT) process saves time and money
through collaboration between City staff and project representatives
to proactively identify opportunities and resolve problems cooperatively.

Our Approach

The DRT meeting provides an opportunity to present a project or idea and receive feedback and guidance from City staff involved in permit plan review.

Our discussion includes all approvals, permits and plan submittals required for your project based on what is known at the time of your meeting.

Our Purpose

The DRT meeting brings together all project stakeholders at one time, in one room, to ensure effective and efficient communication and to assist in preparing a complete application submittal to ensure the fastest review time and permit issuance.
