What is a Plan of Development (POD)?
A Plan of Development (POD) is a site plan which describes how a parcel of land is proposed to be improved. It includes outlines of all structures and site improvements, including but not limited to:
- Property lines
- Setbacks
- Driveways
- Landscaping
- Existing structures
- Proposed structures
- Utility connections

Typically, a POD does not involve any entitlements - that is, there is no requirement to obtain additional approvals for the type of development proposed (i.e., zoning, variance, etc.) The POD review focuses on reviewing the entire project layout for basic design and compatibility and to ensure that a project meets applicable regulations and policies.
