the Codes Administrator with the appropriate application fee, deposit and required information.
As a part of the application, 15 copies of a preliminary plat conforming to the requirements of the
subdivision regulations and a vicinity map showing the location of the proposed subdivision shall
be submitted.
An application shall not be scheduled for public hearing until the application form has been
fully completed, the fee and deposit paid, and all required information submitted. The
deposit shall be used to cover expenses incurred by the city in the processing and review of
the application. If the city’s processing and review costs exceed the amount of the initial
deposit, the applicant shall be required to pay the additional amount.
3. The Planning Commission, based on the standards set out in the subdivision regulations, may
approve, approve conditionally, or disapprove the preliminary plat within 60 days of receiving the
plat at a regularly scheduled meeting.
B. Engineering Plan Review Process:
1. Upon the approval of the preliminary plat by the planning commission, the subdivider shall have
prepared by a licensed professional engineer, engineering drawings for all proposed and required
improvements containing the data and information specified in the applicable subdivision
regulations. The engineering drawings shall be submitted to the Codes Administrator for review
and approval by the City. If the proposed subdivision is to be developed in phases, engineering
drawings need only be for the applicable phase of the development to which the subsequent final
plat will apply unless otherwise specified by the Codes Administrator, City Engineer or planning
commission.
2. The City Engineer shall review the submitted engineering drawings in order to determine their
compliance with City design standards. After having reviewed the submitted engineering
drawings, the City Engineer shall notify the subdivider and the Codes Administrator, as to their
compliance. In the event that the drawings do not so conform or comply, the City Engineer shall
specify the specific manner in which such drawings do not so comply. The subdivider shall then
have corrections made of the defective drawings and resubmit the corrected drawings.
3. The Planning Commission shall approve a final plat only after consideration of the City Engineer's
opinion that the drawings are consistent with the approved preliminary plat and comply with their
design standards.
C. Final Plat Process
1. The subdivider shall submit the final plat application form, along with the appropriate fee, deposit
and any required supplemental information. Included as part of the application shall be the
original and 15 copies of the final plat prepared in accordance with the subdivision regulations.

has been fully completed, the fee and deposit paid, and all required information submitted.

of the application. If the city’s processing and review costs exceed the amount of the initial
deposit, the applicant shall be required to pay the additional amount.
2. The Planning Commission shall review the final plat and, based on the approved preliminary plat
and standards set out in the subdivision and zoning regulations, approve or deny the final plat.
3.. The final plat shall then come before the Governing Body for their consideration of any
dedications from the subdivider of street rights-of-way, drainage easements, park lands, or other
property to be used for public purposes.
