Plan Review

Building? Remodeling? Meadowcreek Village is a deed-restricted community. All construction in the neighborhood is subject to those deed restrictions. Most construction will require a city building permit. To obtain a permit, you will need to verify that your construction meets the requirements set forth in your deed restrictions. Meadowcreek Village Civic Club can help with that by checking your plans before you apply for your permit. This is a free service available to all property owners in the neighborhood. Construction that violates your deed restrictions may be required to be removed. It is much easier to correct a problem on paper than it is to do so after construction has begun.

To have your plans reviewed, please send all of the following documents:

  1. A completed and signed (click to download).
  2. Copies of complete building plans, materials listing, and specifications.
  3. A property site/survey plan or plat map showing the location of the proposed project, along with all existing structures, paving, and setback lines.
  4. Detail drawings as needed to clarify the project.

For fastest response, you may send documents by This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. If the drawings were done on computer, please convert them to PDF (preferred), JPG, or TIF files so they can be read on most systems.

If the drawings are on paper, you can scan them. If a large page has several smaller drawings on it, scan each one separately. 300 dpi PDF (preferred) or JPG work well, giving clear results with relatively small file size. You may need to send them in multiple e-mails if your service provider limits your attachment size. Before sending, be sure the images are clear enough to see all the lines and read all the text. If they are not, adjust the settings on your scanner and rescan.

After you send your e-mail, you should receive a response to let you know it has been received. If you do not receive a response within a day or two, please try again. If you need further assistance, e-mail for more specific instructions.
