Current Planning assists property owners, developers, business owners, and neighborhood groups by facilitating the land development and zoning process. Staff handles the review of rezoning and subdivision plat applications; commercial building site and landscape plans; residential building permits; Board of Zoning Appeals variances and appeals; and vacations of streets, alleys, and easements. Staff reviews these applications for consistency and conformance to the City of Topeka’s Zoning Regulations and Comprehensive Plan. A planner of the day is available to answer questions and inquiries on land development, zoning and subdivisions during business hours. Current Planning also arranges pre-application submittal meetings with all of the appropriate City of Topeka staff on matters of land development, zoning, and subdivision platting.
To inquire about a pre-application meeting, contact Mike Hall with the Planning Department at 785-368-3728.
