Clarification of Rough Grading Plan Submittal Requirements
Pursuant to Zoning Ordinance Article 2-601.3, rough grading plans (RGP) that are submitted to Land Development Services must establish the intended permissible use and show proposed grading.
If an RGP submittal is based on an accepted or approved zoning case or approved preliminary plat, then these previous submittals address the intended use and grading requirements. In these cases:
The RGP must clearly identify the corresponding zoning case or
preliminary plat, and any proffers/development conditions shall be
included in the RGP submittal.
applies; however, as part of a pilot program to evaluate RGPs, for RGPs
submitted to Land Development Services starting May 12, 2014,
until the close-of-business on September 12, 2014, the following
- Consistent with PFM 2-0203.4A, a pre-approval condition requiring the submittal of the corresponding major plan shall be established for the RGP in PAWS.
- The “unusual circumstances” of PFM 2-0203.4A are determined to be met.
For “by-right” cases requiring a site plan or minor site plan where the project schedule warrants a plan submittal in advance of the site plan or minor site plan, please contact the appropriate Branch Chief in the Site Development and Inspections Division at 703-324-1720, TTY 711 to determine if the requirements of PFM 2-0203.4A will be met for the site.
