More info

The Technical Coordinating Committee is a means to efficiently share and compile information across departments to support external and internal entities. TCC reviews development applications such as subdivisions (ASP’s/FSR’s/OP’s/Studies/Detailed Designs), Development Permits, UROWs and other development related items.

The purpose of TCC is to assist the development industry with development projects designed and permitted in the most efficient manner possible.
