2. The site size, dimensions and orientation relative to north.

3. The location, name and dimensions of all streets adjoining the site indicating whether privately or publicly owned.

4. The location of existing structures and other improvements on the site, including structures, driveways, parking, loading, pedestrian and bicycle paths, passive or active recreational facilities or open space, and utilities.

5. Elevation of the site at two-foot contour intervals for grades zero percent to 10 percent and at five-foot contour intervals for grades more than 10 percent.

6. The approximate location of significant natural conditions, such as:

a. The 100-year floodplain.

b. The location of drainage patterns and drainage courses.

c. Slopes in excess of 15 percent.

d. Unstable ground, e.g., land subject to slumping, slides or movement.

e. High seasonal water table or impermeable soils.

f. Areas having severe soil erosion potential.

g. Areas having severe weak foundation soils.

h. Significant wildlife habitat or vegetation.

i. Rock outcroppings.

j. Information necessary to comply with Chapter 20.770 VMC, Tree, Vegetation, and Soil Conservation, where applicable.

C. Proposed site development plan. The proposed site plan shall be drawn at the same scale as the existing conditions plan and shall include the following information:

1. The proposed site and its dimensions and area, orientation relative to north.

2. Abutting properties or, if abutting properties extend more than 100 feet from the site, the portion of abutting properties within 100 feet of the site, and the approximate location of structures and uses on abutting property or portion of the abutting property.
