Step 3: Preparation of Land Use and Environmental Applications

Preparation of Land Use and Environmental Applications

A Special South Richmond Development District certification is a non-discretionary action taken by the City Planning Commission, or its Chairperson, informing the Department of Buildings that an as-of-right development has complied with specific conditions set forth in accordance with provisions of the Zoning Resolution.

The BluePRint Team will soon be at work on application standards and samples for SSRDD Certifications. Check back here for more information.
