Traffic Impact Analysis
In order to adequately review development proposals, the city staff request that developers provide a traffic impact analysis to allow the staff to determine the need for street and highway improvements to serve the proposed use and address the traffic impact on the public street network.
Street Name Sign Plan
The Subdivision Regulations require that all preliminary plats submitted to the City for approval have a separate Official Street Name Sign Plan attached. A street name sign plan is generally only required when new streets are contemplated with a development. Because preliminary plans for rezoning or community unit projects serve as a project's preliminary plat, a street name sign plan may be required for these applications.
Honorary Street Name
The City has also established an Honorary Street Name program to recognize significant people, places or events through the placement of special street name signs.
Consent Forms for City Plan Commission (CPC) applications. If the applicant is not the legal owner of record of the property being considered by the City Plan Commission, a consent form signed by the owner and witnessed by a Notary Public must be filed with the application. The consent form grants the CPC permission to consider the case and binds the property owner to any conditions of approval that may result.
- Individual for property owned by a single person
