Development Services Team (DST)

The City of Aurora's Development Services Team works to streamline the development process, create a convenient one-stop shop for all customers' development transactions and develop a predictable time frame using a transparent process.

The entire Development Services Team is excited to empower Aurora's developers with the most powerful development oversight tool in the region.

What is a Development Services Team?

The Development Services Team comprises representatives from Planning and Zoning, Engineering/Public Works, Building and Permits/ Fire, and Economic Development. The team meets with each petitioner before any plans are submitted to answer any project related questions the petitioner may have and to inform them of our review and approval processes.

During these customized Development Services Team (DST) meetings we record all questions, requirements, and processes in a document that is later provided for the petitioner. We also provide copies of aerial photos, topography maps, as well as applicable forms and handouts for all pertinent development processes. In addition, we indicate the appropriate forms and submittal documents required to make a submission.

Benefits of a DST


Handling evaluations with this select team of technical staff members frees up remaining staff for more review time and increases the completeness and accuracy of the submissions under review. Since the inception of the Development Services Team, Planning Council times have been nearly cut in half, improving our review efficiency and saving the developer consultant's fees as well.
