Site plans are prepared for proposed new developments or modifications to existing developments. The site plan document contains drawings and related support materials, such as legal data, topography and natural features, building elevations, existing and proposed structures and utilities, and other information, as required by Section 7.3 of the Zoning Ordinance. This document allows the Building Department and the approving agency to review the site plan in accordance with Section 7.4 of the Zoning Ordinance. Site plans must be prepared and signed by a professional architect, landscape architect, land surveyor, or engineer licensed to practice in the State of New York.
Site plans are referred by the approving agency to appropriate city departments and agencies for review and comments, depending on the location and/or the proposed use of the site or building. In addition, the Westchester County Planning board and/or abutting municipalities receive referral for review and comment where required.
Every applicant should become aware of which city agency will be receiving a referral of the application from the approving agency. The applicant should find out the meeting place, time and date of all reviewing boards and agencies and determine if attendance at these meetings is necessary.
The approving agency resolution may contain conditions which need to be complied with before building permits are issued. In addition, any required changes or additions to the construction plans must also be completed and accepted by the Department of Building.
After the site plan is approved by the approving agency, any subsequent major changes to the plans must be approved by the agency with site plan jurisdiction.
