I am in the process of writing a memo for our PC meeting regarding a site plan for a 22,000 warehouse building. I write one memo that contains each agenda item. The previous planner wrote one memo for each agenda item. I know from being on here that a lot of you guys put a lot of detail into the memo.
Basically for the site plan, my memo says that the site plan meets all the zoning requirements, and staff recommend approval. The site plan and the application has the use, zoning, and all other pertinent info so I don't spend a lot of time rewriting everything that is already provided. I do however write extensively on items that need explanation.
We are a small town and the PC is very familiar with it, but most of the PC will do site visits on their own. I spend A LOT of time making sure each site plan meets regulations and contains all of the necessary info, and my PC relies on me to ensure that they are right.
I have not had anyone suggest that my memo's be more thorough (because the info is still being provided, just in other formats), but I'm wondering if I should be? What info do you all put in memo's that gets it to be pages long? Do you write a memo for each agenda item, or just one memo total for the entire agenda?
