Development

Engineering Plans & Plats
Engineering (civil) plans are sometimes required when a property is platted for development. 
Engineering plans associated with a plat must be submitted for construction of streets drainage, water and sewer systems, fire hydrants, and any other public improvements required within and adjacent to the property being platted. Engineering plans will include details, profiles, cross sections, and plan views of all public (and in some cases, private) infrastructure required for the development of real property. 

Generally, property must be platted or replatted when it is being developed or redeveloped. A plat may also be required when a portion of undeveloped property is being divided and sold or if a building structure is proposed for constru
ction over an existing lot line. All Public Improvements must be at least ninety-five percent (95%) complete (as determined by the City Staff Engineer) before being able to apply for platting. 

A rights-of-way permit will be required for all work being performed within public rights-of-way or easements. (See Permits section) The developer must construct all public improvements, including streetlights and street name signs and other improvements as required.
