The purpose of a sketch plan is to publicly review a large development for general consistency with these land development regulations (LDRs) at a preliminary, conceptual level of detail before the development is fully designed and prior to submission of a development plan.
When Is This Required?
A sketch 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
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, setbacks, parking, 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.
