Ten (10) copies of all other plans or support documents required by this chapter shall also be submitted.
B. Information Required: The site plan shall contain the following information:
1. Location sketch with adjacent land uses.
2. Topography, contour lines for existing and proposed elevations at one foot (1') intervals.
3. Natural drainage and proposed stream flow by directional arrows. If applicable, show that finished flow level is above the 100-year flood area.
4. Legal description of the site to include total area of the site.
5. Location of all existing and proposed structures, including distances from all structures to all lot lines.
6. Percentage of lot covered by impervious surfaces.
7. Percentage of the site covered by any and all structures.
8. Right of way dimensions of all abutting streets whether public or private and access to the site.
9. Parking and circulation areas.
10. Locations, dimensions and description of all existing or proposed easements.
11. Location for any nonvehicular access strips.
12. The future land use designation for the site.
13. Exterior lighting, if any; the type, height and areas of illumination.
14. Service areas for uses such as mail delivery and trash disposal.
15. All existing and proposed utility locations.
16. The location of the nearest fire hydrant.
17. Streets or alley right of ways to be dedicated.
18. The height of all buildings.
C. Supporting Documents: The following documents shall be included with the site plan:
1. Landscape Plan: For any project, the town engineer may require a separate submittal of this plan drawn to scale, indicating the following information:
a. Identify all walks or paths, vehicular drives, parking lots, building entrances, freestanding light fixtures, service or loading areas, signs and locations, open spaces, plazas and recreation amenities with general construction materials noted.
b. All slopes within site are to be called out (i.e., 2:1, 3:1, 4:1, etc.). If site is totally on slopes less than 50:1, state in a general note. All depressed and mounted areas shall be identified with general contour lines and/or proposed elevations. Note any area to be used for detention.
c. A legend shall be included which shows symbols on plan, quantity, type of plant, minimum purchase size and any necessary comments such as ground cover spacing or necessary guying and staking. The legend shall also reflect square footage of each type of ground treatment (i.e., bluegrass, cobble, alternative grass mix, bark chips).
Note: Plants should be shown at mature size on plans.
2. Parking Plan: A parking plan, drawn to scale, shall be submitted. The town engineer may require a separate submittal for this plan based on the scale of the project. The plan shall show all those elements necessary to indicate that the requirements are being fulfilled and shall include, but not be limited to:
a. Delineation of all parking spaces;
