The purpose of a development plan is to publicly review proposed development for consistency with the land development resources (LDRs) at a final level of detail prior to submission of building permit or plat documents.
When Is this Required?
A Development plan is required for physical development that exceeds the thresholds for project size or number of units specified in each zone district.
- How Long: Up to 150 days after application deemed sufficient
- Who Decides:
- Recommendation: Planning Commission
- Final Decision: Town Council
- Your project will be reviewed by several departments in addition to planning, so when drafting your project description/narrative please provide as much detail pertaining to existing site conditions (i.e. lot size, existing development, etc.) and proposed physical changes (i.e. scale of development, building height, FAR, and affordable housing). In addition, you will be tasked with detailing how the proposed project is consistent with numerous physical development standards found within the zoning district for which the project is located.
