The City of Goshen Planning Department, Engineering Department, and Fire Departments have initiated regular plan review meetings (Technical Review) to review site plans prior to permitting. The intent of this meeting is to allow the developer to receive comments from each department, at one meeting. A project representative is not required to attend Technical Review, but attendance is recommended. Technical Review is not for preliminary proposals, which are reviewed through a separate pre-development meeting scheduled on an as-needed basis.
Contact Tara Hetler in Goshen Engineering with any questions at 574-534-2201 or email@example.com.
1. Site Plans and required forms (see checklist) are submitted through our online portal three weeks prior to the Technical Review meeting (see Technical Review Calendar).
2. Plans must include a completed checklist indicating where the required information is located within plan documents.
3. Plans are reviewed by each department and comments are prepared. Comments are provided to the applicant one week prior to the scheduled meeting.
4. Staff from departments and project/development representative(s) meets for Technical Review to review and discuss the project.
5. If revisions are required, the applicant must upload revisions through the online portal (under your items) including a description of how or where each comment was addressed. Plans must be dated and contain revised notes and symbols.
6. Revisions are reviewed by each department and comments or approval are sent out.
7. Once plans are approved a Zoning Clearance is issued by the Planning and Engineering Departments.
8. Two hard copies of the site plans approved by the Technical Review Committee will then need to be submitted to the Building Department.
9. A Building Permit is issued by the Building Department once a proposed development has passed the Building Department’s Local Plan Review, a Zoning Clearance is issued, and zoning and building permit fees have been paid.
10. Required inspections are conducted by the Building Department, Stormwater Department, and the Planning Department prior to occupancy. For more information on the Planning and Stormwater Departments requirements click here.
11. A Certificate of Occupancy (CO) is issued by the Building Department. A building may not be occupied or opened for business until a Certificate of Occupancy is issued.
