What is a Site Plan?
It is a detailed drawing that shows a property, building improvements, property lines, streets, alleys, utilities, etc. It considers how a proposed building footprint and the required parking spaces relate to the public right of way (the streets), the building setbacks, the required buffers, traffic circulation, green spaces, pedestrian access, utilities, drainage elements, topography, and the surrounding properties and buildings.
The Site Plan also relates to building use and size. For example, a residential building would require less parking than a commercial building, thus affecting the layout of the building foot print and the parking area in a Site Plan. Therefore, a Site Plan must take into account building uses, size (floor area and number of stories), and architectural concept to be complete. Building size and use are in turn affected by zoning codes. Thus, a complete site plan shall be evaluated against local development regulations to make sure the project can be approved by the municipality.
