Frequently Addressed Issues

Frequently Addressed Issues (FAI) is an education program developed by the Department of Planning to assist residents and our customers with the basic principles of the department: zoning, permitting and other items that we frequently encounter.  This program has been created to assist our customers with terminology and processes that they may not be familiar with.  We hope you find it helpful.
