What is a Site Plan?
A Site Plan is a detailed development plan showing how a developer plans to improve a site. City staff reviews Site Plans to ensure that a project complies with the Unified Development Code.
The Site Plan process:
- Promotes a better site design;
- Integrates projects more effectively into their surrounding environment;
- Prevents the impairment or depreciation of property values;
- Improves internal vehicular and pedestrian circulation;
- Encourages quality and innovative site planning techniques; and
- Protects and enhances the overall general welfare.
The City of Grand Prairie requires Site Plans for projects involving certain land uses or projects located in a Planned Development District or a Corridor Overlay District. Refer to Article 16 of the Unified Development Code for a complete list of when Site Plans are required.
