What is the platting process?

The platting process allows property owners and City staff time to review and respond to development proposals. Upon receiving a plat, the Planning Department distributes copies to the Staff Review Committee which is composed of various city departments. The Staff Review Committee evaluates the project to ensure that it complies with local and state development regulations. If all requirements are met, the Planning Department will place the plat application on the next Planning and Zoning Commission agenda.

If staff identifies any errors or omissions on the plat submittal, the applicant will receive a letter that outlines all the items that need to be addressed. Once all concerns have been addressed, the Planning Department will place the plat case on the next available Planning and Zoning Commission meeting. Final Plats require the approval of both the Planning and Zoning Commission and City Council.
