[HISTORY: Adopted by the Town Board of the Town of Pacific 9-18-2012 by Ord. No. 2012-21. Amendments noted where applicable.]
The regulations in this chapter shall apply to all construction projects (including new construction, alterations, relocations and/or reconstructions) in all zoning districts, as follows:
Except, the regulations in this chapter shall not apply to construction projects that do not involve alterations or additions to exterior features of a site. Examples of such construction activities include, but are not limited to, interior remodels, interior renovations, mechanical or replacements, roof-window-door repairs or replacements, etc.
The following definitions shall be applied under this chapter:
- A parcel of record under common and fee simple ownership, including the following: subdivision lot, tax parcel, condominium unit, limited common element unit.
- A temporary or permanent assembly of prefabricated or constructed materials consisting of metal, fiberglass, wood or other structural supports supporting a roof, walls and/or other appurtenances designed to protect from weather and the elements.
All construction activities covered under this chapter are subject to site plan approval by the Town prior to building issuance. No building or structure may be erected, constructed or reconstructed, and no building permit may be issued unless a site plan has been submitted and approved in accordance with the requirements and procedures set forth herein. A site plan review fee to be paid by the person submitting the site plan shall be established in a resolution to be adopted by the Town Board.
Site plans give the Plan Commission an opportunity to review development proposals in a concise and consistent manner. The use of the site plan ensures that the physical changes in the property will meet local requirements, that site alterations will not adversely affect adjoining lands, and that development will be constructed in accordance with the approved plans by the developer/applicant/owner.
