Planning Handouts/Forms/Applications

All Handouts/Forms/Applications Listed by PRMD Section

Important Instructions

  • All forms listed under each permit type must be completed for that permit type. For example: Zoning Permit Vacation Rentals requires that PJR-001, PJR-011, PJR-096, and PJR-119 all be completed. Incomplete submissions will result in delays.

  • Use form PJR-001 instead of PJR-004. Form PJR-001 has been updated as of 2/2/2016 and replaces the previous PJR-001 and replaces PJR-004. Whenever PJR-004 is listed as required on a form, use PJR-001 instead.

  • Check the revision date in each document's footer. Although PRMD is continuously working to maintain these documents, some may not reflect the requirements of the currently adopted, triennial code cycle. Please make use of the revision date in the footer of the document as a guide to identifying the currency of a particular document.
