Floor Area Ratio verification must be provided when the cumulative floor area for all buildings on a lot equal or exceed 90% of the maximum allowable floor area for that lot. Two complete, identical sets of construction plans must accompany a building permit application (PDF). One of those sets must demonstrate the floor areas that are represented on the permit application form. No other format, separate plan sheets or diagrammatic presentations will be acceptable. Submitted plans must be prepared at 1.25 inch = 1 foot scale.
Proposed construction plans (floor plans, framing plans, building sections, elevations, etc.) must be consistent with the proposed floor area ratio data. If, in the proposed construction plans, there are dimensional inconsistencies or irregularities such plans will not be acceptable and the application will be denied.
