Land Development

The Land Development team is responsible for the review of plans and inspection of new residential, commercial and industrial developments, issuing land disturbance permits, and bond administration.

Land Development staff provides:

  • land development plan review and permitting
  • site inspection services
  • bond administration to ensure compliance with local ordinances and standards designed to protect our environment, private property, and public safety.  

Plat Review
To ensure that enforceable restrictions on property usage run with developed land, plats are required to be prepared and reviewed by Land Development staff prior to recordation. Land Development staff review plats to ensure the following is included:

  • Lot lines, building lines, rights-of-way (ROWs), easements, and set backs
  • Location of storm drainage structures, floodplains, water quality buffers, and best management practices (BMPs)
  • Notes required for compliance with City ordinances

As-Built Survey Review
As-built surveys are required before subdivisions receive final inspection approval. Land Development staff review as-built surveys to ensure that structures were built in compliance with the approved plans. As-built surveys are prepared to document:

  • Storm drainage systems (inlets, pipes, outlets, swales, and ditches)
  • Storm water BMPs
  • Built-upon area (impervious) surfaces
  • Post-Construction requirements

Site inspections
During and after site construction, inspectors visit the site to ensure the project is built in compliance with applicable ordinances and standards including:

  • Roadway and drainage construction, proof rolling
  • Storm water management
  • Erosion control, stream and lake buffers, BMPs, impervious limits and surface water protection
  • Zoning compliance

Bonds
Proper construction of streets and infrastructure is guaranteed with a bond/surety program managed by the Land Development Department.
