New Site Development Plan Review Checklists

****NEW**** The Site Development Permit Plan Review Checklists have been updated and revised. Click here for the webpage with links to all checklists. Please note: the purpose of these checklists is to assist the consultant in preparing a complete submittal package for the site development permit, and ultimately assist in faster permitting. The only checklist that is required to be submitted to the City with the Site Development Permit Application is the Water and Sewer Plan Review Checklist.

  • Minimum warranty shall be $1,500 unless waived by the Administrator
