Improve­ment plans do not require Plan­ning Com­mis­sion action, but shall be approved by the Coun­ty Engi­neer who shall cer­ti­fy to the Plan­ning Com­mis­sion that the plan is in con­for­mance with these reg­u­la­tions and require­ments. Vari­ance from these require­ments shall be per­mit­ted only by Plan­ning Com­mis­sion action pur­suant to Arti­cle VII. No devel­op­er, how­ev­er, shall pro­ceed with any con­struc­tion work in the project area before obtain­ing this approval. In minor sub­di­vi­sions, if in the opin­ion of the Coun­ty Engi­neer, this require­ment would cre­ate an unnec­es­sary hard­ship, the Coun­ty Engi­neer may waive improve­ment plan require­ments, pro­vid­ed he so noti­fies the Plan­ning Com­mis­sion in writing.

(A) To secure for­mal action on the improve­ment plans, the devel­op­er shall file three (3) blue line prints of the improve­ment plans with the Zon­ing Offi­cer who shall for­ward them to the Coun­ty Engineer.

(B) The Coun­ty Engi­neer shall review the pro­posed im­provement plans and noti­fy the Plan­ning Com­mis­sion, in writ­ing, of his approval, con­di­tion­al approval, or denial. Upon noti­fi­ca­tion by the Coun­ty Engi­neer, the Zon­ing Offi­cer shall noti­fy the appli­cant by mak­ing a copy of the Coun­ty Engineer’s report stat­ing the approval, con­di­tion­al approval or denial. If the notice is of denial, or con­di­tion­al approval, the Coun­ty Engi­neer shall, as a guide­line to appli­cant, state his reasons.

  1. Approval means the appli­cant is now autho­rized to pro­ceed with the phys­i­cal improve­ments in the sub­di­vi­sion, pro­vid­ed the Coun­ty Board accept the improve­ment plans.
  2. Con­di­tion­al approval means the devel­op­er may pro­ceed as out­lined in the pre­ced­ing para­graph, but only after he has sub­mit­ted three (3) copies of the cor­rect­ed improve­ment plans to the Zon­ing Offi­cer, who shall for­ward the plans to the Coun­ty Engineer.
  3. Denial means dis­ap­proval of improve­ment plans. For fur­ther con­sid­er­a­tion, the devel­op­er must rework his plans to con­form to the require­ments and then resub­mit the reworked plans to the Zon­ing Offi­cer as though they were a com­plete­ly new set of plans.
