  • Improvement Plan Review

    Development Review comments on Improvement Plans in the following cases:

    Development Proposals by Jurisdictional Entities Exempt from the Pima County Zoning Code

    When the applicant applies for a construction permit, RFCD Planning and Development Division conducts a review of all drainage-related issues in the interest of public safety and prevention of adverse impacts to adjacent properties.

    In addition, Improvement Plans are reviewed for impacts to regulated riparian habitat and for compliance with the Floodplain Ordinance and the Sonoran Desert Conservation Plan.

    RFCD Development Review will communicate any missing standard requirements to the applicant through a comment letter or e-mail. Review times are shortened in the interest of promoting progress for governmental entities.
