The City of Roseville, Minnesota created an internal Development Review Committee (DRC) to help expedite the review and permit process within the City. The DRC consists of representatives of all departments, administration, community development, police, fire, engineering and public works, streets and utilities and parks and recreation. It was established to ensure internal coordination and provide efficient and timely processing of land use applications, setback permit applications, or other administratively reviewed development proposals.

The DRC comes together to determine technical conformance of proposed developments with the requirements of the City Code. The DRC reviews all development-related submittals such as commercial or industrial site plans, platting or subdivisions, zoning amendments, conditional use permits, variances, and vacations of public easements. Recommendations of the DRC are forwarded to Parks Commission, Planning Commission and City Council where applicable. The program is effective at helping to resolve internal discrepancies in applications prior to formal submission and consideration of approval.

The process helps to reduce discrepancies between department requirements and serves as a one-stop shop for development guidance.
