Board of Appeals Filing Requirements – Revived

Posted this back in 2009, but it needs to be repeated.

Recently we have had a number of incomplete applications filed with the Board of Appeals. I want to remind applicants that a complete filing with the Board of Appeals includes:

Existing condition site plan at 1″ = 20′

Proposed condition site plan at 1″ = 20″

Existing condition elevations and floor plans to scale

Proposed condition elevations and floor plans to scale

Without complete plans, at the time of filing, the public is unable to properly look at the proposal and the Board is unable to properly consider the impacts or judge the benefits of a particular proposal.

Inadequate submittals will result in, at minimum, an automatic continuance of a hearing, and could be the grounds for denying an application.

Remember, the Board of Appeals must make a determination as to whether a project is not substantially more detrimental to the neighborhood than the existing non-conforming structure. They cannot make this determination without proper information.

Oh, and for those who want to say that is not how it is done _____. This is Dennis and not _____, this is how we do it here.
