    • Incomplete applications will not be reviewed.

    • This application will not be scheduled for hearing until reviewed and deemed complete by the Director of Public Works or designee.

    • The Preliminary Plat shall be considered officially filed only when it has been received in the Planning Office in full compliance with the provisions of the Subdivisions Regulations of the City of Big Spring, including items listed above. The Planning and Zoning Commission may recommend approval, disapproval, or conditional approval of any Preliminary Plat. Conditional approval is considered to be approval of a Preliminary Plat subject to conformity with prescribed conditions, but is considered to be approval of the general arrangement of lots, street, and alleys and the width of streets and alleys, but is not considered to be final acceptance of the Subdivision Plat. Preliminary Plats must be considered by the City Council unless otherwise amended by Ordinance. Any approval by the Planning and Zoning Commission is considered a recommendation to the City Council, unless otherwise amended by Ordinance.

    • For all other plats and amendments, this application authorizes the City Secretary to file the plat with the Howard County Clerk for recording, following approval. This application shall also authorize the filing of the associated documents which are approved by the Planning and Zoning Commission or City Council and shall authorize the City of Big Spring to reproduce from the plat, at the expense of the applicant, three direct prints and two Mylar prints for the City of Big Spring record files. Final Plat shall be considered officially filed only when it has been received in the Planning Office in full compliance with the provisions of the Subdivision Regulations of the City of Big Spring.
