What is the process for developing a commercial lot?

Developing a commercial lot is a multi-step process. Initially, ensuring that the property is zoned appropriately to permit the proposed / desired use is important. If the property is not already zoned appropriate, then a rezone will be needed. The next step is to determine if the land has been platted. The property may already be platted, or may require a final, replat, or amending plat. The Commercial Site Plan is the next phase. The final step is applying / submitting all necessary permits, this includes Clearing and Grading and Building permits.
