Site Plans

A site plan is a drawing of your property showing the property lines and any structures that currently exist on that land (house, garage, fence, etc) and where your proposed addition, deck, porch, garage, fence, etc is to be located.

Contents of a site plan

A site plan should include:

Click to see a sample residential site plan.

For additions, two copies of the site plan must be submitted. An architectural plan and/or a structural plan may also be required.

Site plan review

A site plan review determines compliance with local ordinances and applicable state building and mechanical codes. This review is done by a city planner. When the planner gives approval, the next step is to apply for permits.

Projects that usually do not require a site plan review

Siding, roofs, window replacement, and miscellaneous repairs do not require a site plan review. Most electrical, plumbing, and mechanical permits also do not require a site plan review.

Changes to the site plan

After your site plan has been approved, any changes to it must also be approved.
