Differences Between Regular Site Plans and Certified Site Plans
Regular site plans are drawings that show the boundaries of the property and any structures existing or proposed on the property. Certified Site Plans are obtained when a project receives official approval from Maryland National Capital Park and Planning Commission (M-NCPPC). The amount and level of detail required for that project's design is specified by M-NCPPC. This includes not only zoning requirements, but also other site requirements like recreational amenities, lighting and landscaping. Certified Site Plans reflect the highest level of detail M-NCPPC can require for development within Montgomery County. These plans act as the overall controlling legal requirements for a project and all permit and construction activities must abide by them.
