Project Issue Resolution:  The Encinitas Planning Department administers a Project Issue Resolution (PIR) program that is held every Thursday from 2 to 4 p.m.  This is an opportunity for applicants to collaborate with the planning director so they can come up with possible solutions/directions to difficult challenges that may arise during project processing.  The program is only an option after the applicant has tried to resolve the issues with a city staff member and his/her direct supervisor.
