What is a site/plot plan?

A site/plot plan is a drawing of your lot, showing the size and shape of the property and everything on it. Some things to keep in mind:

  • This includes both existing and proposed structures (please indicate which is which).
  • It must be drawn to scale, and show the distances from buildings to property lines, and between other elements such as sheds, fences, garages, or other accessory structures.
  • An arrow indicating which way is North, the street name and address, a legal description of the property, and the location of water, gas, electric, and sewer lines should also be shown on the drawing, along with any easements affecting the property.
  • Topography showing the relative slope of the ground surface should be indicated either by contour lines, or by spot grades related to elevation of a known point.
