  • parcel boundaries and acreage
  • hydrologic features (ditches, swales, streams, ponds, wetlands, floodplain, etc.)
  • locations of steep slopes (>30%) or rock outcroppings
  • structures
  • parking

After you have submitted your Feasibility Evaluation you will receive feedback and guidance from Planning staff. Please allow up to two weeks for your proposal to be reviewed; you will receive an email from our staff once review of your proposal is complete.
If you have been directed to contact agencies, use this Agency Input Form; please obtain all agency comments first, and then submit all-together with this Agency Comment submission form.
