Please refer to Chapter 20 of the Municipal Code for sign regulations. If the project is located in the Central Business District (the Downtown), it is also subject to the Downtown Design Requirements, also found in Chapter 20.

Utility System Plans

A plan of the system must feature sewerage disposal with the location of pipe, septic field, holding tank, or sampling manhole; water supply source with a location of pipe or well; electric, gas, and cable locations; and locations and sizes of proposed easement(s).

These plans must be scaled at 1" = 100' or less. Plans must include existing and proposed contours at USGS standards, surface and storm water drainage, ponds, streams, and ditches. A landscape schedule indicating size, location, type, and height of landscape and screening materials is required at the time of installation. View the Landscape Plan Requirements.

Maintaining consistency with adjacent sites is very important. Existing wooded areas, water courses, and other scenic or significant vistas must be indicated.
