Detailed Area Plan Expected Outcomes
The Detailed Area Plan (DAP) addresses cumulative effects of development on natural resources, transportation, and storm water management and identifies effective mitigation strategies for the study area. Expected outcomes of the DAP process include:
  • Complete build-out analysis of the study area given planned densities
  • Inventory and assess condition of existing infrastructure, including roads, bridges, and surface water ponds and drainageways
  • Identify locations for township collector roads, needed turn-lanes and by-pass lanes, and opportunities for local road connectivity
  • Establish township road access and interconnection to County highways
  • Determine available water supply for drinking water and fire safety
  • Regional trail corridor planning
  • Providing desirable long-term development that maintains and preserves the natural and cultural character of the study area
