Two of the samples below have links to example plans. There will be more added in the future.
The site plan serves as a document on which conditions of development are recorded. The approved site plan is maintained on file at Development Services (DSD) as a permanent record for the subject site and is used as a comparison document when building plans are being reviewed. Any modifications to the approved site plan which changes the design will need a new review and approval. Certificates of occupancy will not be issued until the development of the site meets the most currently approved site plan. Information regarding the site plan submittal review and submittal process can be found in the Land Use Code (LUC) and the Development Standards section 2-01.
A tentative plat serves as a document on which the proposed development is overlaid on a map showing the existing conditions of the property and the surrounding area. These conditions include topography and infrastructure improvements, as well as existing structures. The tentative plat shows specific information so that the designer and the plans reviewer can determine whether the project will function as designed and will comply with applicable regulations. Information regarding the tentative plat submittal requirements and review process can be found in the LUC section 4.1 and the Development Standards section 2-01.
A final plat serves as a survey document suitable for recordation of all or part of an approved tentative plat. The final plat must conform to the approved tentative plat or development plan in lot configuration, design and required conditions of development. The final plat, once approved, is recorded in the Pima County Recorder’s Office. The final plat is kept on file and becomes a permanent record for the subject site. Information regarding final plat submittal requirements and review process can be found in the LUC section 4.1 and the Development Standards section 2-01.
A development plan is a drawing of a project site that provides detailed informationas to how the proposed development plan will be developed in compliance with City ordinances and regulations. A development plan is typically required in conjunction with a rezoning case, special exception case or as a condition of a subdivision plat or annexation case where specific conditions over and above the typical City codes may be required. Information regarding development plan submittal requirements and review process can be found in the LUC section 5.3.8 and the development Standards section 2-05.
A landscape plan is required with most site plans, development plans and subdivision plats. A landscape plan shows in detail how plants are to be situated around the site and typically includes an irrigation plan and associated details. Specific numbers and plant sizes are included in the plan. Information regarding the landscape plan submittal requirements and review process can be found in the LUC section 3.7 and the Development Standards sections 2-06 and 2-07.
Native Plant Preservation Ordinance (NPPO) Plan
A Native Plant Preservation Plan is required in order to develop most property. It is typically included in conjunction with a landscape plan. The NPPO plan shows how the native plants on the site will be preserved, relocated or replaced. Specific trees, shrubs, succlents and cacti are protected by law. These protected species are listed in the LUC. Information regarding the NPPO submittal requirements and review process can be found in the LUC section 3.8 and the Development Standards section 2-15.
Minor Subdivision Plat
A minor subdivision plat is a proposed subdivision which complies with specific criteria regulations as to size and design. It is small in size and is simple in design to the extent that a tentative plat is not required. Although a tentative plat is not required, engineering and zoning information is needed to review the project for compliance with regulations and good engineering practices. Some site information, generally on a preliminary basis, will be required with the plat application to assure compliance with regulations and engineering practices. Information regarding minor subdivision plat submittal requirements and the review process can be found in the LUC section 4.2 and the Development Standards section 2-03.
