Evaluation of Site Plan Review Procedures

Report No: 88-R27

Published in 1988

About the report:

The site plan review procedures of the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) were evaluated. The objectives of the evaluation were to recommend (1) a set of site plan review procedures including a checklist, (2) definitions of the roles and responsibilities of the field and central office divisions involved in site plan review, and (3) an outline for a traffic impact study. These recommendations were to facilitate effective, uniform, and consistent site plan review activities throughout the VDOT and to be responsive to the unique needs of the VDOT field offices and the counties. Data were collected through written surveys of district and residency offices of VDOT and county government representatives and interviews with central office divisions and selected field offices. The data analysis resulted in identification of problems in the site plan review procedure. A procedural guide was developed to present the items recommended as part of the study objectives and to resolve some of the problems. Recommendations were made to resolve other problems that were not addressed by the procedural guide.
