A. Preliminary sketches of the design of a proposed structure or alteration may be submitted to the Planning Department for informal review so that an applicant may be informed of Architectural Commission policies prior to preparing working drawings. If approved, such sketches shall serve as a guide in the further consideration of the same proposed building or structure.
The applicant for a building permit, when subject to the requirements of this article, shall submit to the Director of Planning a site plan, as defined by section 10-3-3012 of this article, and exterior elevations and such other data as will assist the Architectural Commission and the Director of Planning in evaluating the proposed building or structure.
Final plans and elevations shall be drawn to scale upon substantial paper or cloth and shall be of sufficient clarity to indicate the nature and extent of the work proposed and show in detail that it will conform to the provisions of this Code. The first sheet of each set of plans shall give the street address of the work and the name and address of the owner and the person who prepared the plans. The final plot plan shall conform to section 10-3-3012 of this article. Work not thus presented may be rejected by the Director of Planning.
