During the initial stages, the developer will acknowledge and submit basic information for use in creating the project file.

a.    A general digital conceptual drawing in AutoCAD compatible format, the latest edition will be provided to the city.  When this file is reviewed, it will primarily establish that the scale and spatial coordinates are correct and compatible with the City of Archdale Mapping System.  In addition, an overlay of the site will be reviewed for impact to the environment.

b.    At the time of submission of the drawing, a file name will be established for future submissions.  Below is the typical naming convention:

i.     [911 Addressing of the Site]- [Project Name on Title Block]-[Acres]-[Submission]

ii.    Example – 222 South Main Street-City by the Stream-3A-MM-DD-YYYY

iii.    Only the date will change on future digital regardless of .dwg, .pdf, .xlsx, etc.

c.    Draft version of the Financial Responsibility/Ownership Form (REV 21 April 2022)

d.    Draft version of Stormwater Agreement

e.    Current Deed of Property to be developed.  During this phase, multiple deeds may be involved. During construction, a recombined deed will be required before the project construction starts.

f.    Typically, the Stormwater Manager will provide general feedback during an in-person office meeting or a telephone conversation which will typically include the following:

i.    The City of Archdale does not specify a specific nomenclature for attributes in AutoCAD. During the review of the file, the Prospector tab is assessed noting which features have been used by the design professional.

ii.    As a rule, the pipe network for stormwater conveyances located both on the site and in the right-of-way are absolutely required for export to a file geo-database which houses the City of Archdale Stormwater Inventory.  For example, a design professional decides to pipe a system along the right-of-way of a project converting an ephemeral roadside swale to a subsurface pipe system.  The pipe system is considered an encroachment of the project into the existing right-of-way.

iii.    General feedback concerning the interaction of pervious and impervious features on the site will be provided.  Landscaping on a site will typically meet zoning requirements but will also be integral as a component of the “Stormwater Control System” and the evolving “Stormwater Control Regulations” mandated by both the State of North Carolina and the Environmental Protection Agency.
