The City of Goshen Engineering Department, Planning 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 regarding Technical Review at (574) 534-2201 or tarahetler@goshencity.com.

1. Site Plans and required forms are submitted through our online portal three weeks prior to the Technical Review meeting. Please see the checklist for the required forms as well as information that should be shown on the site plans. Also, refer to the calendar for submittal deadlines and meeting dates. 

  • Plans must include a completed checklist indicating where the required information is located within plan documents.

2. Plans are reviewed by each department and comments are prepared. Comments are provided to the applicant one week prior to the scheduled meeting.

3. Staff from the technical review committee and project/development representative(s) meet for Technical Review to review and discuss the project.

4. If revisions are required, the applicant must upload the full set of revisions, not revised pages only, through the online portal (under your items) including a description of how and where each comment was addressed. Plans must be dated and contain revised notes and symbols.

5. Once the revisions are accepted they will be reviewed by each department. Our goal is to have any revisions reviewed no later than 10 business days. We will send a notification when all reviews are complete. You may also see the status of all reviews through the portal.

6. Once plans are approved a Zoning Clearance is issued by the Planning and Engineering Departments.

  • If necessary, additional processes may be required (Planned Unit Development approval, Final Site Plan, PUD Amendment, Subdivision Approval, Developmental and/or Use Variances, etc.).
  • The applicant is referred to the Engineering Department to obtain a driveway/curb/right-of-way permit if required, and to finalize utility connections.

7. Three hard copies of the site plans will then need to be submitted to the Building Department along with the construction drawings, Construction Design Release form, and the Plan Certification form, completed by the individual that submitted the plans to the State​. For any questions regarding the submittal process/requirements for the building permit, the Building Department can be reached at (574) 534-1811.

8. 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. 

9. 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.

10. 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.
