Developer Resources

Technical Review Process for Commercial, Industrial, Multi-Family (3 or more units) and Public/Institutional Projects

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 tarahetler@goshencity.com.

1. Three (3) sets of Plans and Plan Review applications and required forms are submitted to the Planning Department 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 in plan documents.

3. Planning Department keeps one set and routes remaining plan sets to the Engineering and Fire departments.

4. Plans are reviewed by each department and comments are prepared.

5. Staff from departments and project/development representative meets for Technical Review to review and discuss the project. Written comments are provided to the applicant one week prior to the scheduled meeting.

6. If revisions are required, the applicant must provide 3 sets of amended plans to the Planning Department. Plans must be dated and contain revised notes and symbols.

7. The Planning Department will distribute amended plans to Fire and Engineering Departments. Each department will notify the Planning Department when approval is granted.
