A Site Plan is a designed "map" diagram outlining the location of your project and should include measured distances from all property lines. An example is provided below. Site plans should also include as much information about utility locations and access points, driveways, waterways and other important components of property relating to your project.
By providing a visual depiction of your project, it provides an extra layer of safety and security that there won’t be any unintended problems with your project and application. In other words, taking the time to draw a site plan allows the city – and you – to see how your project will work according to city regulations and codes.
A plot plan provides a visual record that you are required to follow once it is approved. A plot plan isn’t just an estimate or a guess about what you will build. Once it has been approved, you are required to preform work exactly as depicted. Any alteration of a plan needs to be submitted for review and approval.
