Conceptual Site Plan (CSP)

Conceptual Site Plans (CSP) show basic relationships among the proposed uses and illustrate approximate locations of structures, parking areas, site access, open space, and other major site features. They may be somewhat detailed or more schematic and depict proposed uses as bubbles connected with arrows or other graphic symbols. CSPs are required in certain zones and must be approved before a Preliminary Plan of Subdivision in accordance with Section 27-270 Order of Approvals of the Zoning Ordinance.College Park
