1. Create a Preliminary Plat
- After the Due Diligence Process has been completed, we take the client approved Concept site plan and create a Preliminary Plat, complete with property description including proposed lots and streets, initial Drainage Analysis and layout of probable storm sewer system, Wastewater analysis and proposed improvements, and Analysis of water requirements such as irrigation and fire hydrants.
- Submit the Preliminary Plat to the City or County for review.
- Address all review comments by making modifications and resubmitting for further review.
- Upon approval by the City/ County, the process for Final Plat can proceed.
2. Create a final Plat
Based on field surveys, including Boundary, Topographic and Tree, the Final Plat depicts the geometry of the site layout and any public right-of-ways and easements.
- The Final Plat must be submitted along with a set of Construction Plans which may, depending on the scope of the project, include:
- Drainage Analysis of existing and proposed conditions
- Grading plans
- Street paving plan and profile
- Sanitary sewer plan and profile
- Water plan
- Storm drain plan and profile
- Detention pond design
- Traffic control plan
- Erosion control plan
- Detail sheets of city construction standards
