Conceptual Submission

Applicants are encouraged to submit items in a conceptual or preliminary state, in any form, when there are questionable review items.  Such submissions could avoid costly resubmission and/or delays later in the review process.  There is no review fee for a conceptual submission.

 

Plan Review

The A.R.B. reviews all submission packages within 30 days of submission unless designated otherwise.  The response will be emailed, however, may be mailed upon request.

The A.R.B. may take one of the following actions:

  1. If all plans meet the Building Guidelines review criteria a letter of approval will follow and you will be directed to send three copies of your plan to be stamped "Approved."  We will retain two copies.  One copy will be returned to you to retain for your records.

  2. If your project either does not meet the Building Guidelines review criteria or it is not conceptually in harmony with the Building Guidelines a denial letter will follow with an explanation of insufficiencies.

Review Fees

  1. There is a one hundred dollar (US$100.00) review fee that includes preliminary and final review for all review category submissions.  This must be included as part of the initial submission package.

  2. Fee for revision to a previously approved plan is one hundred dollars (US$100.00).  This must be included as part of the revision package.

  3. There is an additional one hundred dollar (US$100.00) fee charged to review any submission package that has been previously denied by the A.R.B. if it does not meet the Building Guidelines review criteria or it is not conceptually in harmony with the Building Guidelines.
