This section is included in your selections.

A complete application for a shoreline permit shall contain, at a minimum, the following information:

(1) The name, address, email and phone number of the property owner.

(2) The name, address, email and phone number of the applicant and the applicant’s representative if other than the property owner.

(3) The location of the property including the property address and parcel identification number for all parcels included in the application. When address and parcel identification numbers have not been assigned, location may be identified by section, township, range to the nearest quarter, quarter section or by latitude and longitude to the nearest minute. All applications for projects located in open water areas away from land shall provide a longitude and latitude location.

(4) The name of the associated water body. This should be the water body from which shoreline jurisdiction over the project is derived.

(5) A description of the proposal including the proposed use or uses and the activities necessary to accomplish the project.

(6) A description of the property as it now exists including physical characteristics and any improvements and structures.

(7) A description of the vicinity of the proposed project including identification of adjacent uses, structures and improvements, the intensity of adjacent development and physical characteristics of adjacent properties.

(8) A site development plan consisting of photographs, text, maps and elevation drawings, drawn to an appropriate scale clearly depicting the following information:

(a) The boundary of the parcel(s) of land upon which the development is proposed.

(b) The ordinary high water mark of all water bodies located adjacent to or within the boundary of the project. This may be an approximate location provided, that for any development where a determination of consistency with the applicable regulations requires a precise location of the ordinary high water mark, the mark shall be located precisely and the biological and hydrological basis for the location as indicated on the plans shall be included in the development plan. Where the ordinary high water mark is neither adjacent to or within the boundary of the project, the plan shall indicate the distance and direction to the nearest ordinary high water mark of a shoreline.

(c) Existing and proposed land contours shall be shown at intervals sufficient to accurately determine the existing character of the property and the extent of proposed changes to the land as a result of the development. Areas within the boundary of the proposal that will not be altered by the development may be indicated as such and contours may be approximated for that area.

(d) A delineation of all wetlands that are located within the boundary of the proposal and all wetland areas that will be altered or used as a part of the development.

(e) A description of the character of vegetation found on the site.

(f) The dimensions and locations of all existing and proposed buildings, structures and improvements, including but not limited to: buildings, paved or graveled areas, roads, utilities, septic tanks and drainfields, material stockpiles or surcharge, and stormwater management facilities.

(g) When applicable, a landscaping plan for the project.

(h) When applicable, plans for development of areas on or off the site as mitigation for impacts associated with the proposed project shall be included and contain information consistent with the requirements of this section.

(i) The quantity in cubic yards, source and composition of any fill material that will be placed on the site whether temporary or permanent.

(j) The quantity in cubic yards, composition and destination of any excavated or dredged material that will be removed from the site or transferred on the site.

(k) A vicinity map showing the relationship of the property and proposed development or use to roads, utilities, existing developments and uses on adjacent properties.

(l) Where applicable, the applicant shall provide a three-dimensional visual simulation, or other appropriate graphics, demonstrating the visual impact on the view of the county’s shorelines or other scenic resources from existing residential uses and public areas.

(m) On all variance applications the plans shall clearly indicate where development could occur without approval of a variance, the physical features and circumstances on the property that provide a basis for the request, and the location of structures and uses on adjacent properties.
