Site Plans & Wireless Communication Facilities
A Site Plan is an accurately scaled development plan that shows existing conditions on a site as well as depicting details of proposed development. Along with a site plan, a plat is required for review. A Plat is a map, chart or plan of a tract or parcel of land which is to be or which has been, subdivided.
Development Review Concept Meetings
Schedule a concept meeting with the City-County Planning Department's Major Development Review team. Concept meetings are meant to explain, in general terms, the development review process, what is allowable, and what may be required to accomplish the goals expressed by those in attendance. Questions not related to a specific development project should be emailed to [email protected], rather than signing up for a concept meeting. Pre-submittal Meetings that are required per UDO should not be scheduled for these slots without prior permission from staff.
- Concept meetings are conducted virtually on Thursdays, 1:00pm-5:00pm. There is no fee for this service.
- Time slots are 30 minutes and arranged on a first-come, first-served basis.
- Same-week scheduling is possible if time slots are available, but the request must be received by 12:00pm Tuesday to allow sufficient review time prior to conducting the meeting.
- It is helpful - but not required - to send a site sketch or preliminary plan in advance. Plans should be transmitted at the same time the meeting is scheduled.
- Schedule a Concept Meeting and submit concept meeting materials to Planning Department Staff.
After completion of a concept meeting, staff will advise on next steps for submitting a site plan for review.
Development Review Multi-departmental Pre-submittal Meeting
Multi-departmental pre-submittal meetings are intended to provide a comprehensive summary of applicable Unified Development Ordinance (UDO) and transportation requirements, stormwater and development engineering regulations, and infrastructure capacity.
Site Plan Types
Site Plans vary depending on the size and scale of the project. The list below breaks down the differences between each site plan and requirements of each level. If you have completed a concept meeting, the Planning staff should have advised you on the level of site plan necessary for project completion. For your convenience, we've provided a Site Plan and Final Plat Standard Notes document for detailed instructions and notes to best guide your application.
