The preliminary plan shall be drawn at a reasonable scale (100 feet to one inch preferred), submitted in ten copies, and shall include the following:
(A) Legend, which will include the title and number of revision (for example, the preliminary plan, or Woodnoll First Addition, Second Revision); the date of the preliminary plan or revision; the scale of the plan; a north arrow; the approximate acreage in the tract being subdivided; the total number of lots; and the name, address, and telephone number of the developer or the subdivider, the surveyor, and the engineer.
(B) Location map, showing the relationship between the area proposed for development and the surrounding area.
(C) Legal description of the tract to be subdivided.
(D) Boundaries of the tract shown by a heavy line.
(E) Name, location, and right-of-way width of all existing streets, rights-of- way, and platted streets within 200 feet of the proposed subdivision; and the surface elevation, walks, curbs, gutters, culverts, and the like.
(F) Name, or temporary designation (Street A, B, C, and so on), right-of-way width, and type and width of pavement of all proposed streets. It shall also include any streets shown on the adopted comprehensive plan.
(G) Proposed easements or rights-of-way other than for streets (for example, for drainage, pedestrian ways, bridle paths, or bicycle paths), and their location, width, and purpose.
(H) Lot lines and scaled dimensions, lot numbers, block numbers, and building setback lines for irregularly shaped lots. The building setback distance is the distance required to meet the minimum lot width of the zoning district.
(I) Sites, if any, for multi-family dwellings, shopping centers, churches, industry, parks, playgrounds, and other public and nonpublic uses exclusive of single-family dwellings.
(J) Names of abutting subdivisions, and the recordation date and number.
(K) Utilities on and abutting the tract, including the location, size, and invert elevation of sanitary, storm, and combined sewers; the location and size of water mains; and the location of gas lines, fire hydrants, electric and telephone poles, and street lights. If water mains and sewers are not on or abutting the tract, the direction, distance, and size of the nearest ones, showing the invert elevation of sewers, shall be indicated.
(L) Statement of the proposed method of water supply, sewage disposal, street lighting, trash and garbage storage and collection, gas, cable TV, or other utilities that are to be provided.
(M) Other existing improvements, including buildings, on the tract.
(N) Natural features, including lakes, marshes or swamps, water courses, and other pertinent features; along with wooded areas and wetland boundaries as defined in Ch. 160 of this code; the location of all trees on site which are a minimum of six inches in diameter measured approximately three feet above the ground designating the trees to be retained, removed, relocated, or replaced. Smaller trees to the retained may also be shown by the applicant to assist the Arbor Inspector in determining replacement requirements. Groups of trees in close proximity may be designated as "clumps" of trees with the estimated number and type of trees noted. Trees with a diameter of 24 inches and greater shall be identified by type, height, diameter and canopy spread. Trees to be removed, relocated, or replaced must be named (common or botanical name) on the plan. A general description of existing vegetation on the tract shall also be provided. One print of a recent aerial photo to a scale of one inch to 440 feet or larger on which the boundaries of the tract are clearly defined. Copies or photo of the U.S. Geological Survey map of flood-prone areas for this area to be developed.
(O) Existing contours, at one foot intervals, based on the North American Vertical Datum (NAVD) of 1988 for the tract to be subdivided, and, where practicable, extending 25 feet beyond the tract boundary, including water surface elevations for all bodies of water, and the date obtained.
(P) Surface drainage, with direction of flow and method of disposition to the natural drainage area indicated.
(Q) Ten-, 25-, and 100-year flood elevations within the project site according to the national flood insurance program, flood insurance rate maps.
(R) Soils information. A soil classification map as an overlay for comparison with proposed development activities shall be provided, and indicate soil classifications on the preliminary plan as identified by the United States Department of Agriculture Soil Conservation Service in the "Seminole County Soil Survey" and "Soil Survey Supplement." An applicant may challenge this designation by securing competent expert evaluation, at the applicant's own expense, demonstrating that the identified soils are not classified correctly. If that determination is concurred in by the city, the soils shall be correctly identified for the purpose of this chapter. Soil analysis by a qualified soil engineer shall be furnished upon request of the city, and shall include, but not be limited to, the following: the location and results of tests made to ascertain subsurface soil, rock, and groundwater conditions; depth to groundwater, unless test pits are dry, at a depth of five feet; the location and results of soil percolation tests; and the location and extent of muck pockets. Tests shall indicate weight- bearing capability of the soil after stripping and compacting. This soils investigation shall include an evaluation for sinkholes.
(S) Zoning on and abutting the tract.
(T) Proposed public improvements, including highways or other major improvements planned by public authorities for future construction on or near the tract.
(U) When required by the City Engineer, the preliminary plan shall be accompanied by profiles showing existing ground surface and proposed street grades, including extensions for a reasonable distance beyond the limits of the proposed subdivision; typical cross- sections of the proposed grading, roadway, and sidewalk; and preliminary plans of proposed sanitary and storm water sewers with grades and sizes indicated. All elevations shall be based on North American Vertical Datum (NAVD) of 1988.
(V) Draft of restrictive covenants, if any.
(W) Landscape and irrigation plan for all common areas.
(X) Environmental survey of endangered, threatened or protected species as required by the city.
