N EW!  Garbage Collection Plan- Updated Requirements

The garbage collection eligibility requirements were updated July 24,2015 (Sec. 39-63). These requirements are described in the attached reference guide which also includes the template for the garbage collection plan (also known as the solid waste collection plan). The updated garbage collection plan must be submitted with all subdivision plats up to 25 residential units created on a private street, permanent access easement or shared driveway development within the city limits. This requirement for an updated plan is effective immediately. For more information, Click on the Garbage Collection Plan

Procedure for Site Plan Review

Due to the large number of plans in the system and to be more responsive to customers, the Planning Department instituted a policy that allows priority review for plans in the system that have planning as the only remaining approval.
