Do I need a Plan of Development (POD) if I’m expanding a site that is already developed?
Yes. For any existing 2-family, multi-family, or commercial developments, an as-built POD (subject to certain conditions and to a zoning clearance review and fee) will be allowed for any development existing prior to September 22, 2008. Industrial developments have a similar allowance, but subject to the existing effective date of October 15, 1984. An as-built POD is processed via a land use application with the average process time of 2 to 3 weeks. For proposals on existing 2-family, multi-family, or commercial developments involving internal tenant improvements, additional wall sign, and other non layout changes or minor permits, only building permits will be required.
