For a Residential Development

  • A preliminary plat, improvement plans, and a final plat are required.
  • Plans must be signed and sealed by a registered land surveyor and a professional engineer registered in the State of Illinois.
  • The City Council must approve each of the above plats and plans.
  • No lot, tract, or parcel of land may be conveyed until the final plat is approved and recorded, except in those cases when subdivision plats are not required.
  • Plans must be signed and sealed by a registered land surveyor and a professional engineer registered in the State of Illinois.

A sketch plat for a proposed development may be submitted for review and comment prior to the submission of a preliminary plat. The sketch plat is reviewed by the Planning Commission, City staff, and appropriate committees, and recommendations are given.

(A sketch plat is not required before submission of a preliminary plat.) All plats and plans are to be submitted to the Zoning Officer.
