Development Review

The Development Review Process can take on many different forms depending upon the size and the scope of the project.

The planning department have several types of application process including:

  • Site Plan Review (SPR) - A site plan review is for all new types of construction and land disturbing activities. The site plan is required to show the overall scheme of development including all  proposed improvements and alterations to the existing site.
  • Subdivision/ Plat (SP) - The Subdivision/ Plat process is required for:
    • Any parcel of land which is divided into two or more parcels for the purpose of transferring ownership or conducting development,
    • Any development which creates a new public street,
    • The re-subdivision of property,
    • The aggregation of parcels.
  • Variance (BA) - A variance is the process by which an applicant can request deviation from the land development regulations.
  • Conditional Use (CU) - The conditional use process reviews certain uses based on site specifics and location. It is then reviewed to ensure the use can be adequately accommodated on the site. A set of conditions may be tied to the use to ensure that no adverse impacts are created to properties and land uses within the immediate vicinity.
  • Zoning Amendments (ZB) - Amendments to the Zoning of a parcel may be required in order to accommodate a particular use. The zonng amendment must be in conformance with the Future Land Use designation of the parcel and appropriate for the local area.
  • Comprehensive Plan/ Future Land Use (FLU)/ ULDR/ City Code (LPA) - Amendments may be made to these documents by the City. Members of the public may apply for amendments as well.

The Citys Development Review Guide is a quick reference tool which corresponds to the various components of the City’s development review process.
