b. In addition, for any major amendment to the PUD, the following:

a. Preparation. The site plan may be prepared by a professional engineer, architect or professional land surveyor registered or licensed by the state of Washington. They shall prepare and, by placing their signature and stamp upon the face of the planning documents, certify that all information is portrayed accurately and that the proposed PUD complies with applicable standards and regulations.

b. Scale and Format. The site plan shall be drawn with reproducible black ink on mylar or similar material. All geographic information portrayed by the plan shall be accurate, legible, and drawn to an engineering (decimal) scale. The horizontal scale of a plan shall be 100 feet or fewer to the inch, except that the location sketch and typical street cross sections may be drawn to any other appropriate scale. The site plan shall be 24 inches by 36 inches in size. Each sheet shall be numbered consecutively. An index sheet orienting the other sheets shall be provided. If necessary, the planning director may authorize a different sheet size or scale.

c. Contents. The site plan must include each of the following:

i. Vicinity Map. A vicinity map sufficient to define the location and boundaries of the proposed PUD relative to surrounding property, streets and other major manmade and natural features.

ii. Existing Geographic Features. Except as otherwise specified, the following existing geographic features shall be drawn lightly in relation to proposed geographic features and developments:

(A) All existing property lines lying within the proposed PUD and all existing property lines lying within 100 feet of the PUD.

(B) The location of all existing streets within the PUD, both public or private, including the right-of-way widths, pavement widths and the names.

(C) Existing water features such as rivers, creeks, ponds, wetlands, storm water detention basins, watercourses, floodplains and areas subject to inundation or storm water overflow.

(D) Existing contour lines at intervals of five feet for average slopes exceeding five percent or at intervals of one foot for average slopes not exceeding five percent. Contour lines shall be labeled at intervals not to exceed two feet and shall be based upon city datum, e.g., NGVD.

(E) Location of any existing structures lying within the proposed PUD. Existing structures to be removed shall be indicated by broken lines, and existing structures not to be removed shall be indicated by solid lines.

iii. Proposed Improvements. The following proposed geographic features shall be shown:

(A) The location of any public or private streets and/or storm drainage facilities.

(B) The general location of the types of uses or densities and general distribution of lot types.

(C) The boundaries, dimensions and area of public park and common open space areas.

(D) Identification of all areas proposed to be dedicated for public use, together with the purpose and any conditions of dedication.

(E) Conceptual plans for pedestrian and bicycle circulation systems.

(F) The treatment proposed for the periphery of the site including setbacks, fencing, the approximate amount, location, and type of any landscaping. (Ord. 5092 § 1, 1998.)
