Preliminary Development Plans

Some development applications require the submittal of detailed plans identifying the nature of the development proposal. These include: requests for rezoning to a planned district, special use permits where a new building will be constructed and non-residential buildings in residential districts, such as churches, schools and subdivision pools.

These applications must be accompanied by:

  • A site plan showing the proposed layout of the development, including building locations, parking lots, access, landscaping and buffering;
  • Civil drawings to indicate existing and proposed grades, drainage patterns and locations for detention and stormwater treatment facilities; and
  • Building architecture, which may be conceptual.

Revision may be made to a preliminary plan has been approved. The extent of the changes will determine whether or not a new public hearing will be required to approve the revised plan.
