What is a commercial site plan?

A site plan is a development plan, drawn to scale, showing uses and structures proposed for a subject property. A site plan often includes proposed lot lay out, landscaping, proposed building footprint, streets, driveways, parking spaces, fire lanes, utilities, and easements. The Site Plan process allows for City staff to review the proposed site for conformance / compliance with the City’s Unified Development Code, UDC, and other development standards, codes, and ordinances.
