Minor Site Plans & Administrative Reviews

 

A Minor Site Plan (MN) may be submitted when the proposed improvements are being requested to a site on which there is not a previously approved site plan, or on which there is an existing approved plan that has been closed. In addition, the improvements must be minor in nature, as well as not change either the internal or external traffic flow patterns; not increase the number of dwelling units; not increase the nonresidential building size by more than 5000 square feet, or 75 percent of the gross building area, whichever is less; not encroach into a resource protection area, and generally, the proposed disturbed area should not exceed 5000 square feet. Minor site plans take approximately one month to review, and are valid for one year. 

The following forms are required when submitting a minor site plan:

Requests for Administrative Review (AR) must be submitted in writing to the Land Development Division. Administrative Review Plans may be submitted following approval of such a request by the Land Development Division when the proposed improvements are to a previously approved unclosed plan and/or constitute minor development, such as temporary activities, parking lot alterations, landscaping changes, storage tank replacement, etc., which doesn't necessitate the formal submission of a full site plan.

Administrative reviews do not include redesign of infrastructure that requires the certification of computations by registered professionals; significant reviews to the internal or external traffic patterns; changes to the number of buildings units and/or lots; or increases to the amount of impervious area. Administrative reviews take approximately one month to review and are valid for one year.
