However, he or she will ensure you fully understand what City requirements exist and seek resolution for any issues that arise.
For example, your property may not be able to handle the project you've proposed, due to hillside slope, fire regulations, height limits or other regulations. The Development Case Manager will make sure you understand the situation in a timely fashion. More importantly, he or she will also ensure that issues are identified early in the process so we can suggest ways to modify your project to comply with regulations.
