Subdivision of Property
Site Plan Review
The Department of Planning & Management performs an administrative review of all site plans to make sure that proposed development complies with applicable zoning regulations. Three sets of site plans should be submitted to the Department at the One Stop Shop on the 3rd floor of City Hall. Written comments, if applicable, are normally returned within a week and a half.
Site Plans should contain the required trees survey, demolition (if applicable), site layout, plan detail, and landscaping plan sheets.
No site disturbance work is permitted prior to the inspection of any required tree protection barriers and issuance of a valid permit.
All plats should be submitted to the Department of Planning & Management for review to determine compliance with the Subdivision Regulations. A copy of the Subdivision regulations may be obtained from the Department of Planning & Management and may also be viewed on-line at www.municode.com. Non-exempt subdivision plats are then forwarded to the Planning Commission for consideration. Exempt plats may be processed administratively and need not go to Planning Commission.
Applicants should supply four copies of a Preliminary Plat or ten copies of a Final Subdivision plat that are proposed for consideration by the Planning Commission. The plat should be submitted early enough to resolve all issues at least four weeks prior to the meeting.
The initial submittal of an exempt plat need only consist of three copies, though ten prints and the Mylar are needed once the plat is ready for approval. All plats require an affidavit of ownership and the information must also be provided on diskette.
NOTE: Approved Preliminary Subdivision Plats are valid for one year only.
