(1) Prior to the preparation of a preliminary subdivision plat, the subdivider shall contact the Planning Director to schedule a preliminary discussion meeting with other city agencies interested in land development. The purposes of the preliminary discussion are:
(a) To inform the various city departments of a potential project;
(b) To obtain the other departments' input regarding matters of public utilities, public safety, existing conditions and future plans in order to assist the subdivider in the preparation of a preliminary plat; and
(c) To efficiently utilize the Planning Commission's time during preliminary plat review by addressing all major issues and concerns in advance.
(2) A preliminary discussion meeting is mandatory for all major subdivisions prior to preliminary plat submission, unless the Planning Director determines that the scope of the project will not have significant impacts to the city.
(B) Submission requirements. The subdivider shall submit ten copies of a preliminary discussion plan to the Planning Director. The plan shall be drawn to an acceptable engineering scale and shall include at a minimum, the following information:
(1) Existing boundaries and site features, such as lakes, streams, woodlands, and the like; adjacent streets; storm sewer; sanitary sewer; waterline; and existing topography at two-foot contours.
(2) Location and arrangement of proposed streets; lot lines; front building setback line; storm sewer (including stormwater detention); sanitary sewer; waterline; easements for other utilities located outside of public right-of-ways; parkland and/or other open space lots; conservation easements; and rough grading at two-foot contours.
(C) Review process. Upon receipt of the preliminary discussion plans, the Planning Director shall distribute such plans to the other city agencies for review and comment. A meeting date and time shall be established so that the city agencies can present their comments, concerns and issues regarding the plan to the subdivider. Every attempt shall be made to schedule this meeting within five to ten business days from when the plans are received by the Planning Director. At the conclusion of the preliminary discussion meeting, the subdivider should have the direction and recommendations necessary to prepare the preliminary plat.
