Development Plans Review

Post Planning Commission Review

For projects that will require a Cost of Construction Site Work Permit the final site plan approval is coordinated by Engineering Staff. Examples of these projects include townhome, condo, or sitework only projects. Please send a digital copy of the plans for review to the Engineering Point of Contact for that project listed in the Planning Commission Staff Comments. Final Site Plan Approval is required before any permits can be issued for the project.

For Projects that require a full building permit, final site plan approval is coordinated by Planning Department Staff. Please contact Joe Ornelas in the Planning Department at (615) 893-6441 for additional details. The Engineering Point of Contact may require additional items for review including Right of Way plans and Stormwater management plan and calculations.

Subdivision Regulations

Subdivision regulations are the rules the state authorizes a community to adopt that govern the planning, design, construction, and development of public infrastructure. The City of Murfreesboro has divided these into two separate but companion documents.

The first of these documents, Subdivision Regulations, regulates the process for developing property that will include public infrastructure such as public streets, storm drains, street signs, and street lighting. Subdivision Regulations include the requirements for submittal of master plans, preliminary plats, construction plans, and final plats for review by the Planning Commission. This document will be of considerable use to planners, developers, engineers, and surveyors as they navigate the process of land development. This flow chart illustrates the review process.

The second document, Street Design Specifications, includes the specifications for the construction of public infrastructure elements including curb and gutters, sidewalks, roadways, drainage culverts, etc. This document is more technical in nature and includes typical drawings for the design and construction of public infrastructure. This document will be of considerable use to engineers and contractors.
