What Is a Site Plan, Also Known as a Plot Plan?
A site plan is an accurately scaled drawing showing the existing conditions on a unit of land, including property lines, and detailing the location of any proposed and existing development, such as structures, paving, and uses of land.
Every city has their own requirements, so make sure to check what they are in your city. We have been drawing site plans for over 15 years and have never had one denied for an over-the-counter permit. If you take one of our site plans to your city and they deny it, we will give you a full refund.
When Is a Site Plan Required?
- For any building permit for new development
- Any redevelopment that includes exterior work
- Many types of land use applications, such as site plan review, conditional use, or land divisions
All site plans require accurate property line locations in relation to any existing and/or proposed structures, parking, or other site features, but they may have more detailed requirements as well. To determine what's required for your project, refer to your city or county application packet. This will include a list of necessary items that must be shown on the site plan, and you can use that information to determine what type of site plan you require.
If you're not sure, reach out to us with this list of requirements, and we can guide you to the most cost-effective solution.
