 Rezoning and Conditional Use Permit Guide
Step 1 of 18
Rezoning & Conditional User Permit Application Guide

The first step is to complete a Development Review Staff (DRS) Pre-application Conference or receive written comments for the proposed development. Please see the tutorial on Development Review Staff (DRS) Pre-application Conference.

Once you have attended the 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 rezoning or conditional use permit.

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.

Joint Planning Area (JPA)

If the subject parcel is located within a Joint Planning Area your application and supporting documentation will be sent to the City Planning Division for their review. Their comments will be incorporated into the letter we send you after the reviews are completed.

The purpose and intent of the establishment of Joint Planning Areas between Lake County and the municipalities of the County, is to foster cooperation as stated in the Intergovernmental Coordination Element of the 2030 Comprehensive Plan. Intergovernmental coordination fosters improved governmental efficiency and effectiveness and resolves incompatibilities or conflicts through methods which encourage cooperation, communication and coordination between Lake County and its municipalities, adjacent governments, regional, State and Federal government and quasi-governmental entities in order to establish improved growth management, development activities and natural resource conservation.

EXAMPLE PLOT PLAN

Drawn to scale means a specific amount of distance on a drawing equals a specific amount of distance on the subject parcel. i.e. one inch equals 20 feet (1" = 20') For instance, the example of the plot plan you see below is scaled at one inch equals 30 feet (1"=30'). Notice the distance between the dwelling unit and west property line is one inch, or 30 feet.

Scale must be consistent throughout the plot plan.

The plot plan depicts the measurements of all structures, roads, easements, setbacks and property lines as they are in real life.
