Moving forward, per City Ordinance, the City of Crown Point Engineering Department requires an Erosion and Sediment Control Plan be submitted with all site plans for individual lots. The Engineering Department will no longer mark these requirements for you during the review process. The required erosion and sediment controls may be included on the site plan — if done so legibly. The Erosion and Sediment Control Plan must include, at a minimum:

  • Temporary construction entrance.
  • Appropriate perimeter erosion and sediment control measures (Silt fence, Inlet protection, etc.).
  • Clean-up of sediment that is tracked onto roads. (Street sweeping, no flushing)
  • Concrete Washout practices.
  • Site stabilization practices for all areas disturbed during construction.
  • Self monitoring plan and procedures.
  • Contact information for the site operator responsible for implementing and maintaining the Erosion and Sediment Control Plan. (Phone number and Email address)

Additionally, ADA ramps must be identified on the site plan where applicable.

Any site plan or submittal with missing or unsatisfactory information will be rejected and a resubmittal will be required. Please forward this information to the respective contact for your business.

Road Cut Permit

A Road Cut Permit is required when excavating within a public roadway. The permit holder is responsible for repair and maintenance of the road cut until the City repaves the affected road segment. Roadways need to be repaired to City specifications and must be inspected by the Engineering Department prior to installing asphalt binder and final asphalt surface. Permits must be applied for online. You will need to create an account if you do not already have one.
