Now that you have downloaded the approved construction plans, what's next?
You now have the plans for the construction of a new Sustainable Single-Family Home. This is the first step in the process to get started on your new project. You will work closely with the Planning and Development Department staff to ensure that your project meets all the necessary building codes and ordinances. The plans that you just downloaded meet all our current building codes, now we need to discuss where you want to build your new home. The following is a short list of requirements/steps that will aid you in getting the proper site approvals in place before you get your permit and prepare to start construction.
Step 1-Check for Water and Sewer availability. Now that you have settled on a site to build your new home, we need to make sure that your piece of land has access to available water and sewer utilities. Please visit out Project Engineering counter on the 2nd floor of Phoenix City Hall, call at 602-262-6551 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org to determine if your site has access to these utilities.
Step 2-Submit a Site Plan. This plan is required to locate your new home on the lot and ensure that it meets the requirements of our zoning ordinance. Your site plan should be submitted at the Site Planning counter or through our website portal for approval. The site plan will need to be approved prior to submittal for a single-family residential home permit. If you have any questions, please reach out to site planning staff at 602-495-0302 or email@example.com.
Step 3-Submit a Grading and Drainage plan. This plan is required to assign the finished floor elevation for your new home and address drainage and retention of stormwater on your lot. The plan should be submitted at the Site Development counter or through our website portal. The grading and drainage plan will need to be approved prior to submittal for a single-family residential home permit. If you have any questions, please reach out to our civil staff at 602-534-6502 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
