PROCEDURE FOR SITE PLAN REVIEW APPLICATION
The purpose of the site plan review ordinance is to ensure that all uses and structures permitted shall be constructed so they comply with all applicable ordinances and regulations and are compatible with existing and probable future uses, as well as to promote the welfare of the community to the maximum extent possible.
Site plan review is required as follows:
Site plan review shall not be required for a single or two family dwellings.
No grading, excavation, removal of vegetation, demolition or other substantial physical work in preparation for construction shall be commenced prior to site plan approval.
Site plan approval is conducted through the Planning Commission and does not require a public hearing or Council approval. All site plans subject to review shall be submitted to the Zoning Administrator for internal review by City staff. Once the Zoning Administrator determines that the site plan is complete, he shall transmit the site plan, along with comments from City departments to the Planning Commission for consideration at its next meeting.
The Zoning Administrator shall not be required to submit any site plan for review, which was submitted less than twenty (20) days prior to the next regularly scheduled Planning Commission meeting. The Planning Commission meets the fourth (4th) Thursday of each month. The Zoning Administrator shall determine once the site plan application is complete and includes all items found in Chapter Fifteen (15), Site Development Requirements of this ordinance. No site plan shall be submitted to the Planning Commission for review until it is deemed complete by the Zoning Administrator. All information provided becomes public record upon submittal.
The fee for site plan review shall be $100, plus legal, engineering, and/or other professional costs. Fifteen (15) sets of folded prints shall also be included with the application.
