Except as otherwise determined by the Chief of the Fire Department, the site plans submitted to the Columbia City/Whitley County Joint Planning and Building Department in support of an application for a building permit to construct any building shall be submitted to the Fire Department for review. Within five days of receipt, the Fire Chief or Fire Marshal shall cause a review of the plans and determine whether any building or structure on the land to be developed is, or will by virtue of the development, become in excess of the requirements of § 94.014 for fire hydrants and fire apparatus access roads. If, on review it is determined either that the fire protection facilities or access roads are not required or that they are adequately provided for in the plans, the Fire Chief or Fire Marshal or his or her designee shall endorse his or her approval thereon. If adequate provision for such facilities or roads is not made, the Fire Chief or Fire Marshal or his or her designee shall make recommendations to the Columbia City/Whitley County Planning and Building Department.
