When property boundaries are unclear or indeterminate, all applications for building permits for new construction (and not interior remodels) shall be accompanied by:
A. Plat: A plat drawn to scale showing the actual dimensions of the lot to be built upon, the size and location of existing buildings, buildings to be erected and existing buildings on adjacent property, and such other information as may be deemed necessary by the community development department or the planning commission for the enforcement of this title.
B. Legal Description; Survey; Title Search: A complete and accurate legal description of the property, which is the subject of the application, together with a certified survey of the property showing any conflict with adjoining property, overlaps or discrepancies between the legal description and any existing fence lines. Also to be submitted will be a preliminary title search showing legal ownership of the property. If the developer is not the legal owner of the property, he shall, in addition, submit written proof of his right to develop the property. Such proof shall consist of options, contracts or other documents. The developer will be entitled to black out confidential information on such documents as, for example, the amount of consideration paid and the amount of periodic payments. A careful record of such applications and permits shall be kept in the inspection division for a period of one year from the date of receipt thereof. (Ord. 2000-23, 7-18-2000)
