Site Plan Applications

A site plan is a drawing prepared by a Professional Designer that includes: location of buildings and structures; relationships between buildings; landscaped areas, fencing, walkways, parking areas, grading information and other issues such as access, loading facilities and garbage handling facilities. Other drawings required as part of the site plan process may include: building elevations, floor plans, and landscape plans that show existing and proposed vegetation and planting. The following material is provided to assist applicants with the Site Plan approval process.

Some detached dwellings are subject to site plan approval.  Homeowners, applicants, designers, and architects are required to arrange a preliminary meeting with the Development and Design Division prior to submitting a Site Plan application. This will allow staff an opportunity to identify any issues early in the process and assist in reducing the time required to obtain approvals.

The following table contains all the various forms and documents pertaining to the site plan approval process:
