Do the changes I want to make to my commercial building require site plan review?
Site plan approval is required for multiple-family and nonresidential development under the following intended situations:
  • Any new principal structure (or complete redevelopment of any site) or the use of land for nonresidential purposes
  • Where an existing principal structure erected prior to the date of adoption of the Zoning Ordinance is proposed to be expanded, for which the sum total of gross floor area expansion(s) since the date of this title are equal to or greater than 25% of the total gross floor area of said structure
  • Any new or modified building and/or site improvements for a zoning lot which has previously received site plan approval under the Zoning Ordinance, re-approval of the plan is required for components of the plan which depart from the approved site plan
  • A site plan shall not be required exclusively as a change of use except where such change of use results in increased off-street parking requirements which cannot currently be met on the site
  • A site plan shall be required along with any application for a special use permit or a special use permit amendment for any nonresidential or multifamily development
