Site Plan Review
Site plan review is required for every commercial, industrial, institutional, and multi-family (three or more units) project in the City prior to issuance of a building permit or development activity. The site plan review requirement applies to first-time development of property as well as additions and expansions. Site plan approval does not constitute approval of a building permit or any other required approval by City departments. For example, building plan review, HVAC and plumbing plan reviews are separate submittals that your project will need to address with the Building Inspector.
Preliminary and Final Site Plan review is an administrative process that is typically held within 15 working days after the completed plans, application and fees are received. It is highly recommended to schedule a pre-submittal meeting with the Building Inspector and City Engineer prior to submitting your site plan for acceptance. Please call the City Engineer’s office at (920) 674-7727 to schedule an appointment.
The Site Plan illustrates the proposed structure and its use, the surrounding property including property lines, street right-of-way, parking lot, driveway, drainage, utilities, setbacks, parking area and other physical features of the property pertinent to its footprint and use.
