I Want to See Plans

  1. If you observe a lot where an existing house has been demolished and it looks like someone will be developing one or more new homes on the site and you would like to know the following:
  • Was the waiver process for the NCD-3 followed?
  • Do the proposed structure(s) and development meet all the NCD-3 codes?
  • What will the home(s) look like?
  1. You can obtain copies of the site, floor and elevation plans on file at the city. Click on the link below and fill out the form:
