PetBOT (Planning, Engineering, Traffic Engineering, and Bureau of Traffic) is a reviewing body integrated into City Planning’s Conceptual / Schematic Design Review Process focused on the public right of way. At times, other departments are needed or requested to join a meeting depending on the scope of the development project.
PetBOT meetings provide an opportunity to educate design review applicants about the permitting processes involving elements in the streetscape or public right of way.
Presentations at PetBOT are not the same as Design Review/Commission presentations; there is no approval process or voting that occurs.
PetBOT does not review aesthetics of the interior or exterior of the building.
Presentations should last around 5-10 minutes maximum, allowing for discussion with PetBOT.
Projects commonly reviewed at PetBOT: New construction or renovation projects; Townhome projects; Large-scale development projects; Streetscape Plans
PetBOT meetings are virtual and occur Tuesdays at 11:00am-12:00pm, as needed.
Please coordinate with the Neighborhood Planner associated with the property to be added to a PetBOT agenda prior to applying for Schematic Design approval.
