Local builder was issued permit to develop "strip mall" type commercial property.
Plan included adherence to zoning regs that include planted buffer strips.
As building inspector, I asked land planner to inspect and sign off on sitework, including storm drains and sewer connection.
After site finished, with curb, striping and planting installed, land planner's letter of final comes in, but is narrowly focussed on storm drains and grading.
My site visit finds most buffers eliminated, parking rearranged, and considerable planting installed on state highway right of way off property.
I have held up CO on building until builder submits amended site plan under land planner's stamp that reflects changes.
Builder submitted an "as built" by a surveyor that clearly shows violations.
I suppose builder will have to request a variance to avoid going in reverse.
Re planting on highway ROW, are there opinions on that?
