Guidance for Site Development Plan (SDP) Projects
Commercial and multifamily projects currently undergoing site development plan review may become subject to the fee if there are major changes requiring a resubmittal. An SDP concept that has "major changes" requiring a new SDP submittal (a resubmittal) after January 1 is considered a new project and will become subject to the fee. Visit the SDP webpage for a detailed list of what conditions and impacts were considered "major changes" after January 1.
