Special Requirements for Application
Prior to the approval of any application to the Department of Buildings for a site alteration or a development, the applicant shall file applications with the appropriate City agency requesting the certifications required in Section 107-12 (Public Facilities).
Any application to the Department of Buildings for a site alteration or development shall include a survey map or maps prepared by a licensed land surveyor showing, for the site, existing topography at two foot contour intervals and the locations, names and calipers of all existing trees of six inch caliper or more and; for any development, the application shall also include certifications from the appropriate City agencies as required by Section 107-12.
However, the requirements of a survey map at two foot contour intervals shall not apply to zoning lots 4,000 square feet or less owned separately and individually from all other adjoining zoning lots on September 11, 1975, and on the date of filing such application.
However, when a zoning lot which was owned separately and individually from all other adjoining zoning lots existing prior to January 2, 1975, is proposed to be developed with one single- or two-family detached residence, the certification reports of Section 107-12 shall not be required, but the provisions of local laws shall apply. When a permit for land contour work, storm water drainage systems or other site alteration work is required from the Department of Transportation or Department of Environmental Protection or when a public agency requires a site alteration on either privately or City-owned land, the public agency involved shall, prior to initiating or issuing a permit for such site work, notify the Department of Buildings.
The Department of Buildings and the public agency involved shall jointly determine that the proposed site alteration work is consistent with the provisions of Sections 107-31 (Topographic Regulations), 107-32 (Tree Regulations) and 107-25 (Special Regulations along Certain Streets and Railroads). In case of non-agreement, the provisions of Section 107-91 (Inter-agency Coordination) shall apply.
