Thread: Digital submissions of development proposals?

  1. #1

    Digital submissions of development proposals?

    The organization I'm working for is updating a Master Plan for one of our member towns, and this time we're including a chapter on technology issues. The town is interested to learn more about how development proposals could be submitted digitally and what standards could be applied to the submission, i.e.: the submission must be in the generally-accepted format (NH State Plane in NH) so that it could be viewed as coverage over the town's digital tax map.

    Has anyone written anything having to do with this subject? If so, I'd like to find out more about the language you used regarding such standards. It would be a big help in finally finishing up this Master Plan!

    I'd suggest you join the NH Plan-Link e-mail discussion group, and pose your question there as well as here. Go to http://webster.state.nh.us/osp/plan-link/start.html

    In Londonderry, we have the following in our Subdivision and Site Plan regulations:

This shall include final and complete reports for all items submitted during review for the Town of Londonderry’s file. The Chairman and Secretary of the Board shall endorse a reproducible mylar, and four (4) paper copies of the approved plan(s) meeting the conditions of approval upon receipt of an executed bond for all improvements, excluding buildings. The Planning Department shall retain a reproducible and four (4) paper copies with supporting documents for Town of Londonderry records.

    In addition, complete electronic files of all of the drawings in the plan set in the latest AutoCAD format or other acceptable format approved by the Town shall be provided for the Town of Londonderry’s records.
