USE THIS FORM TO Submit a project for input and guidance from the Technical Review Committee, the City group responsible for reviewing site plans and commercial projects. First Step meetings are a free service provided by the City of Fernandina Beach to help guide a project through the development review and permitting process. The First Step meeting is a meeting between an applicant and representatives of City departments responsible for reviewing applications for the purpose of exchanging information on the potential development of a site. This may include providing information on permissible uses of the site; required improvements; infrastructure requirements; any applicable design standards; any potential regional, state or federal standards; requirements for supporting plans, documents and studies; and any applicable design standards.
A change of use occurs when an existing use is replaced by a different use, as listed in table 2.03.02. A proposed change of use will require a First Step meeting as set forth in 11.01.02. A change of use shall not require a local development order when all the conditions of 11.00.05 are met. The determination that a proposed use or development constitutes a change of use is an administrative decision subject to appeal. When a local development order is required due to a proposed change of use, all standards and procedures of the Comprehensive Plan and LDC shall apply to the proposed new use.
**Please note that First Step meetings will be held at 10:00 AM on the second Thursday of each month (unless otherwise indicated) at the City of Fernandina Beach Municipal Airport 2nd floor conference room.**
