The Planning & Construction Services Department had been taking Letters of Intent (LOI) to apply for an Interim Use Permit starting on June 19th and stopped taking them on July 9th. The department held a drawing on July 24, 2018, of the 18 letters of intent that were received. Click here to see the drawing results. The first 4 will be given 60 days to submit a complete application to the One Stop Office, the remainder will be on the waiting list.
