Site Plan Review Committee
- North Quincy Street Plan Addendum (2013)
- October 2017: Conceptual Review Memo
- Note: This is a review of the applicant's Concept Plan. Concept Plans are an early, high-level look at a development proposal before a developer makes a formal submission of a full 4.1 application. Concept Plans are reviewed by County staff and do not have the level of detail of a complete 4.1 Plan. Afterwards, staff will prepare a report for the applicant, intended to identify major issues early-on in a potential site plan application, and to give the applicant an opportunity to address those issues before formal filing of a 4.1 application. Therefore, the Concept Plan and subsequent submitted 4.1 Plan will differ and some issues raised by staff in the Concept Plan review may have been resolved prior to the 4.1 application.
