The following list contains some of the important aspects that are reviewed during these processes.

  • Roadway and transportation network
  • Drainage

  • Water system
  • Grading
  • Landscaping
  • Density
  • Parking
  • Wetlands
  • Floodplain compliance


All new developments must provide a new ductile iron water line system and an asphalt roadway system as a minimum.

Drainage Planning & Review

All storm water ways are reviewed for compliance with applicable laws. All new subdivisions must meet Standards and go through Planning Department and Engineering Department review processes. All drainage systems, culverts and detention basins must be designed with good engineering practices.
