What is a site plan?

Is a graphical representation of a proposed development that depicts building footprints, property lines, parking, green space fencing, dumpsters, etc. Plans are to be legible and drawn to an engineer’s scale. Site plan review is the process of reviewing documents and drawings required by the zoning ordinance to ensure that a proposed land use or activity meets zoning ordinance standards as well as state and federal statutes.

A site plan includes existing and proposed man-made features, as well as natural site characteristics. A site plan is required when improvements are to be done on a site that include earth filling, paving or building construction.
