§ 154.023  EXHIBITS.
   (A)   A land clearing permit application must include exhibits showing permits and applications for tree removal in conjunction with proposed residential construction, subdivision residential development, multi-family development and construction, commercial development and construction, and industrial development and construction.
   (B)   Any person proposing any development or construction, other than a single-family residence, shall submit as an attachment to the required site plan or building permit 15 copies of a legible reproducible plan, drawn to scale and indicating the following information for the entire site:
      (1)   Location, shape and spatial arrangements of all existing and proposed buildings, walls, improvements and structures;
      (2)   Identification of uses on adjacent properties;
      (3)   Location, shape and spatial arrangement of all parking areas and access roads;
      (4)   Existing and proposed utility services;
      (5)   Existing and proposed elevations;
      (6)   Setbacks, yard requirements and easements;
      (7)   Existing and proposed wells;
      (8)   All sinkholes, rock outcroppings and historical sites; and
      (9)   A certified tree survey overlaid directly upon the site plan, and indicating the location, referenced to structure, of all trees. The survey shall distinguish existing trees that are proposed to be destroyed, relocated, replaced, preserved at their present location or introduced into the development from an off-site source. All trees shall be identified by variety, trunk diameter and height. Groups of trees less than three feet apart may be designated as clumps, but any tree with a trunk diameter of eight or more inches must be specifically designated. For sites on which development or tree removal activity is to occur on less than the entirety of the site, the enforcement official may provide that the tree survey exclude those portions of the site it determines will not be affected by the development activity.
   (C)   Any development or construction except a single-family residence that does not require site plan approval shall submit, as an attachment to the construction permit application, the following listed information:
      (1)   Location, shape and spatial arrangements of all existing and proposed buildings, walls, improvements and structures;
      (2)   Identification of uses on adjacent properties;
      (3)   Location, shape and spatial arrangement of all parking areas and access roads;
      (4)   Existing and proposed utility services;
      (5)   Existing and proposed elevations;
      (6)   Setbacks, yard requirements and easements;
      (7)   Existing and proposed wells;
      (8)   All sinkholes, rock outcroppings and historical sites; and
      (9)   A certified tree survey overlaid directly upon the site plan, and indicating the location, referenced to structure, of all trees. The survey shall distinguish existing trees proposed to be destroyed, relocated, replaced, preserved at their present location or introduced into the development from an off-site source. All trees shall be identified by variety, trunk diameter and height. Groups of trees less than three feet apart may be designated as clumps, but any tree with a trunk diameter of eight or more inches must be specifically designated. For sites on which development or tree removal activity is to occur on less than the entirety of the site, the enforcement official may provide that the tree survey exclude those portions of the site it determines will not be affected by the development activity.
   (D)   Any owner/builder, construction or development of a single-family residence shall submit, as an attachment to the construction permit application, a sketch or rendering, drawn to scale, indicating the types of trees and their location in relation to the proposed structure and plans for removal.
   (E)   Where the enforcement official or reviewing agency has verified that no tree removal activity is involved in a proposed development or construction activity, the attachments prescribed in this section shall not be required.
   (F)   Prior to the issuance of a building permit or certificate of occupancy, the Building Official shall certify that the final construction or construction layout is in substantial conformance with the original application and plans upon which the tree permit was issued.
   (G)   A tree removal permit issued under this section shall be subject to the same time limitation rules as are applicable to its accompanying construction or building permit.
   (H)   Upon the issuance of a tree removal permit under this section, a copy of the permit shall be prominently displayed on the site, prior to the removal, relocation or replacement of any trees. Tree removal permits issued in conjunction with building or construction permits shall be included with all other permit cards and shall be displayed alongside them on the site.
   (I)   No final certificate of occupancy shall be issued nor electrical power cut-in authorization given until the relocation or replacement of trees, as required by the tree removal permit, has been completed and then final tree inspection approval has been given by the designated enforcement official. Trees relocated from one portion of the site to another that do not survive transplantation shall be replaced with a suitable replacement tree as specified by the enforcement official. Trees not surviving relocation or transplantation after six months from date of final inspection shall be exempt from the provisions of this division.
