Site Development

The Site Development & Inspections Division (SDID) staff of plan reviewers and inspectors ensure that the development of residential and commercial projects meets applicable county, state and federal regulations.

SDID seeks excellence in service by balancing the needs of the community with environmental regulations and construction standards to ensure sites are developed in concert with their approved site-related plan, and conform to county codes and standards, including the Public Facilities Manual. As part of this service, staff review, inspect and evaluate the following:

  • New public infrastructure;
  • Control of erosion and sedimentation;
  • Storm drainage;
  • Stormwater management; and
  • Tree preservation.

Land Development Services (LDS) also provides support to religious and community groups, the development community, residents, and other county agencies throughout the site development process via the LDS Project Management Program.

As an added resource, you can use the Land Development System (LDSnet) to research zoning cases for proposed development and to check the review status for site plans, grading plans and waivers. You may also visit our Online Building and Land Development Information page to find information on building and site-related activities such as building inspections, plan approvals and permit information.
