Application Forms

Application forms

The following table provides materials for all plan types that go through a traditional, hard-copy submission process. For preliminary plan, site plan, and record plat applications, visit our ePlans page.

See our Forest Conservation Program page for information on the County’s Forest Conservation Law.

See the application form for requesting an extension to the public hearing date scheduled for project, sketch, preliminary, and site plans.

Some projects are eligible to obtain approval of a Forest Conservation Exemption without having to submit an Exemption application and plan drawing if there are no proposed land disturbing activities. See the forms at the bottom of this page if you believe one of these Exemption exceptions applies to your project.

There is one Fee Schedule and Worksheet for all application types. Some of our fees changed on February 13, 2017, so make sure you are using the most recent fee schedule. The most recent change was to add Administrative Subdivision fees.
