Preliminary Plats

For the initial submittal for staff and utility company review, please provide 20 folded copies. After staff review is completed and staff comments have been forwarded, 17 copies of the revised plat are requested for delivery to the Planning and Zoning Commission members and city staff. Following action by the Planning and Zoning Commission, 20 copies of the preliminary plat are requested for delivery to the City Council.

Final Plats

As long as they do not deviate in any significant respect from the preliminary plat approved by the Planning and Zoning Commission and City Council, final plats are not submitted to the Planning and Zoning Commission. Final plats are submitted directly to the City Council for approval. The City Council approves final plats by ordinance, which must be read at 2 Council meetings. Twenty copies of a final plat must be submitted at least 10 working days prior to the City Council meeting at which it is to be introduced.

The City of St. Charles subdivision regulations state that "prior to recording of the approved final plat, a digital media copy of any record plat prepared using computer assistance shall be submitted in a computer readable format approved by the City Engineer." Final plats will not be approved for recording unless they are accompanied by a digital media copy in auto cad format. The digital copy of the final plat should be submitted to the GIS Coordinator in the Community Development Department.

Site Plans

For the initial submittal for staff review, please provide a completed Site Plan Application form, the filing fee $50 and 3 folded copies of the site plan containing all items on the site plan checklist (included with the application). After staff review is completed and staff comments have been forwarded, 20 copies of the revised site plan are requested for delivery to the Planning and Zoning Commission.
