The purpose of the Concept Plan (CP) is to provide a general outline of the scope, character, and nature of the proposed development that is consistent with the policy direction of the Community Plan and the BSD Special Area Plan, the requirements of the BSD Code, other related policy and regulatory documents, and the review criteria, and to consider the proposal within the context of existing and planned development within the vicinity of the project.
The purpose of the Preliminary Development Plan (PDP) is to establish a framework for the proposed development located in the Bridge Street District that is consistent with the requirements of the Community Plan, BSD Special Area Plan, BSD Code, and BSD Design Guidelines, other adopted plans, policies, and regulations, and the review criteria.
The purpose of the Final Development Plan (FDP) is to confirm compliance with the PDP, all requirements of the BSD Code, Community Plan, BSD Special Area Plan, BSD Design Guidelines, and other adopted plans, policies and regulations, and the review criteria.
Amended Final Development Plan applications are required for revisions to approved final development plans.
Waiver Reviews are a process to allow deviations from specific code requirements that may only be granted by the Planning and Zoning Commission. A request for a deviation from a requirement of sections 153.059-153.066, which do not otherwise qualify for an Administrative Departure.
Master Sign Plans are intended to allow for one-of-a-kind, whimsical, unique signs that employ the highest quality materials and construction while allowing flexibility to deviate from the standards of the Bridge Street District Design Guidelines. MSPs are not intended to allow for a greater number of signs without consideration for unique sign design and display.
The Concept Plan is often the first step of the Planned Unit Development District approval process. Concept Plans allow the Planning and Zoning Commission to discuss the general concept of the proposed development with the applicant and determine whether the proposed development is appropriate for the site, consistent with the Community Plan, and worthy of moving forward through the Planned Unit Development District approval process. Concept Plans are not required or legally binding.
The Rezoning/Preliminary Development Plan is the first formal step in the Planned Unit Development District approval process. Approval of the Preliminary Development Plan establishes the permitted uses, density, development requirements, and general layout of the site.
The Final Development Plan is the final step in the Planned Unit Development District approval process and requires the highest level of detail and plan refinement. The Planning and Zoning Commission determines if the proposal is consistent with the approved Preliminary Development Plan and is ready to proceed to building permitting.
Amended Final Development Plan applications are required for revisions to approved Final Development Plans to determine if the proposed modification is consistent with the approved Preliminary Development Plan.
An Informal Review provides the opportunity for feedback at the formative stage of a project allowing the Planning and Zoning Commission to provide non-binding feedback to an applicant regarding the proposal.
Uses requiring Conditional Use review have potentially greater affects on their surroundings than permitted uses and require additional scrutiny to ensure that the use id appropriate for the location. A Certificate of Zoning Plan Approval must be obtained for the property within one year of the Conditional Use approval.
Rezoning changes the zoning classification of a property, which may include different permitted and conditional uses, and development standards. Standard District Rezoning requires review and recommendation by the Planning and Zoning Commission and two readings by City Council. The Planning and Zoning Commission makes a recommendation to City Council on Standard District Rezoning applications.
The Preliminary Plat application is the first step in creating a subdivision, involving the preliminary placement of development lots, public streets, and other associated facilities. The Planning and Zoning Commission makes recommendations to City Council on Preliminary Plat applications.
The Final Plat application is a refinement of the Preliminary Plat and presents the final configuration of lots within a subdivision and/or finalizes the placement of public streets and utilities. The Planning and Zoning Commission makes recommendations to City Council on Final Plat applications.
