The City of Littleton’s Community Development Department is working to implement changes that improve processes and increase efficiency for residents and businesses. The introduction of the Rapid Residential Review (RRR) Process has increased building permit efficiency, allowing citizens the opportunity to be issued same-day permits. The time for processing building permits through the RRR ranges from 20 minutes to an hour and has allowed for 38 permits to be issued between May 8 and June 16. Another improvement has been updating zoning and code requirements as well as business resources and providing easy access to those changes through the city’s website. Land use and economic development are also high priorities for the city. With the Envision Littleton Comprehensive Plan and Transportation Master Plan efforts underway, the city has been able to gain insight from stakeholders, identifying goals and priorities of residents and business owners. The city is working to capitalize on the information gained and seek more input as the plans move toward the draft stage in mid-August.
