Construction Plan Review 

The Construction Plan review is required to properly identify the design standards for all public improvements and the layout of the development as set forth in the First Plat are adhered to.  This plan is used to begin construction of improvements.  The Construction Plan is generally reviewed and approved by the Planning Department, unless there are significant changes - see Section 5.2(D) of the Subdivision Regulations for more information.
