The City of Orange offers streamlined development review to help our applicants save time and money so they can focus on what they do best: their business. For complex projects, we have our Business Enhancement Support Team (BEST), a group of senior management staff from the City Manager’s Office, Community Development (Planning and Building), Public Works, and Fire. BEST is available to conduct on-site assessments of properties to give you immediate feedback about compliance with Planning, Building, and Fire code requirements. This proactive approach can help identify potential roadblocks to development and offer possible solutions. By getting City feedback at the beginning of the project, the applicant can reduce the time and costs associated with the development review process. For more information about BEST, please contact our Planning Division at (714) 744-7220.
