 How to Pre-Application Conferences
Pre-Application Conference Tutorial

Prior to the filing of an application for subdivisions, master park plans, site plans and planned unit developments, the applicant shall meet with the County Manager or designee to discuss the development review process.

The purpose of the conference is to acquaint the applicant with the requirements and procedures of the Lake County Code and to determine the appropriate application process as provided for in the Land Development Regulations. The County Manager or designee may waive the pre-application conference if it is determined that the conference is not necessary because the applicant has sufficient knowledge of the requirements of the Lake County Code and/or has previously submitted completed applications in Lake County for other projects of a similar nature. Persons applying for any other type of development order are strongly encouraged to set up a pre-application conference.

Once you have attended the Development Review staff (DRS) meeting, received written comments or choose not to attend because you have sufficient knowledge of the application procedure, you are ready to make application for a site plan, subdivision, master park plan or planned unit development.



A Property Record Card contains information about your property; the alternate key number, legal description, list of structures on the parcel, etc.. You can find a copy of your property record card visiting the web site below:


Enter your name or address and click the Search button and click the View button beside your name in the list. This allows you to view your property record card.

NOTE: Remember, if your property is inside of municipal boundaries, all permitting will go through the municipality, not through Lake County.


Drawn to Scale

Drawn to scale means a specific amount of distance on the map you draw equals a specific amount of distance on the subject parcel. For instance, the example of the site plan you see in this guide is scaled at one inch equals 100 feet (1"=100'). The site plan depicts the measurements of all structures, setbacks and property lines as they are in real life.

The scale has to be consistent throughout the site plan.


Site Plan

A plan for one (1) or more Lots or Parcels showing the existing and proposed conditions of the Lot(s) or Parcel(s), including all of the requirements set forth in the Land Development Regulations.



The division or re-division of a parcel of land, whether improved or unimproved, into three (3) or more Lots or parcels of land, including any division of a parcel of land by the construction of a new public street, by a change in an existing public street or by the construction of other public improvements or facilities.


Master Park Plan

Permit for the development of mobile home and recreational vehicle parks meeting all requirements of Section 14.10.00 of the Land Development Regulations.


Planning Unit Development (PUD)

A tract of land which is developed as a unit, and which is planned and developed in a single operation or within a proposed period of time by a series of scheduled development phases according to an officially approved final PUD Development Plan, which does not necessarily correspond to the property development and use regulations of the conventional zoning districts, but which permits flexibility in building siting, mixtures of housing types and land uses, and encourages the utilization of usable open space and the maintenance of significant natural features.
