PREDEVELOPMENT meetings are required for new homes, additions, more than 50% remodels and any project in which a change in lot coverage occurrs.  Predeveloment meetings are NOT required for less than 50% remodel projects but we strongly urge you to schedule the meeting anyway.  All contractors are expected to know the development requirements of the city and a misunderstanding of how to calculate remodel projects could be very costly.  Remodel projects of 50% or more of the structure require the entire structure to meet current new home building requirements including foundation minimum height requirements.

We primarily need the property owner and the contractor to participate but other consultants are welcome to participate.

A pre-development meeting is intended to ultimately expedite the project review, ease the construction process, and ensure all items are met for a scheduled move in. The meeting will provide an opportunity for the City to step owners through the Development Packet outlining the process and the requirements in Bunker Hill so there is a good understanding of issues such as set-backs, trees and drainage and these items are included in the planning (and cost estimate) up front.

 

Please refer to the following Key Ordinance Components for Planning and Development:

 

EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY: A form survey will be required prior to the scheduling of a pier inspection. This will require the construction of forms prior to the drilling of piers. The survey also needs to indicate the proposed location of any planned piers. Stakes need to be used in the field to indicate the location of all planned piers. We are very sorry for any inconvenience this may cause but we are forced into this requirement as a result of several contractors who have misconstrued the city’s pier inspection as a confirmation of correct pier position.
