Discussing current issues in engineering
If you’re thinking of developing a commercial property in Harrisonburg or Rockingham County, this article will tell you what to expect. Regulations and ordinances can seem overwhelming, so we did the research for you. Our overview will help you map out what’s needed for your next project or commercial site plan design.
How Do I Know If I Need a Site Plan?
Not only do new construction projects require a site plan, but many smaller projects require a site plan too. Construction or modification of water, sewer or utility systems fall into this category, as does any property whose disturbed area will be greater than 10,000 square feet. Additionally, any property located within a floodplain will need to have a site plan, regardless of type or size.
Are There Site Plan Prerequisites?
Yes! Both Harrisonburg and Rockingham County require you submit additional documents that an engineer must prepare and gain approval of prior to submitting your site plan to your local Community Development office. Depending on the scope of your development project, you may need to show approved reports related to Water/Sewer, Fire Chief and Public Works regulations.
This is just a brief overview for helping you in getting started! Do you need help in navigating your own site plan approval process? Or do you need professional engineers for commercial site plan design and review? If so, give us a call! Our team is here to provide you with the high-quality civil engineering services your project deserves. Contact us to get started today.
