A site plan is a drawing that shows everything proposed to be developed on the property. It includes the density, height and setbacks, along with drainage, landscaping, sidewalk, parking and construction details of what they want to build. It also shows how the site is proposed to be used.

Site plans are required for new commercial, industrial and multi-family developments. They may also be required for redevelopment if there is a change of use, such as a former retail store being converted to a restaurant.

A team of Land Use Review staff will review the site plan to ensure that it meets all applicable City codes and ordinances. The review process often includes several rounds of update and review of updated plans.  Most site plans do not require commission approval, and may be approved administratively.  Once the site plan demonstrates compliance with all applicable codes and ordinances, staff is required to approve it.

If the applicant seeks a variance that requires commission approval or if the site plan needs overall approval by a land use commission, there will be a public hearing and you will be notified.
