Most development applications must be accompanied by drawings that clearly communicate details of the proposed addition to the community. Depending upon the complexity, location, and type of development, typical drawings may include:
1. Plan drawings are composed from an aerial view and are best used to communicate site layouts, landscape plans, and functional relationships.
2. Cross-section drawings are like a slice across a specific section of a project. These types of drawings are very effective for showing proportions and elements within the streetscape.
3. Elevation drawings are 2-dimentional and show the exterior details of a building or structure. Elevations are best used to show façade details, building height, and scale.
4. Perspective drawings are 3-dimentional and are best used to communicate surrounding context and to assess issues relating to mass and compatibility.
