Developers Punch List
The following is the typical procedure that
must be followed after approval has been granted by Borough
Council and before any site work can begin:
1.) All conditions of approval must be addressed
unless otherwise specified.
Provide cost estimate breakdown listing quantities, amount
types of work of all public and private improvements proposed
for the development. This list shall not include cost of
materials or construction of any proposed buildings or
improvements that will be accepted by another municipal
3.) The cost estimate must be sealed and signed by
a PA registered engineer.
4.) Once the cost estimate has been submitted to
the Borough it will be reviewed by the Borough Engineer for
accuracy. If the estimate is found to be acceptable by the
Borough Engineer, the developer shall provide an acceptable
surety in the amount of 110% of the cost shown on the approved
5.) A developers agreement will be drafted by the
Borough Solicitor once the cost estimate is approved. Two
original agreements will be forwarded to the developer. The
developer must sign both copies and return them to the Borough
for signatures along with an acceptable surety in the amount
approved by the Borough Engineer.
6.) Two sets of Mylar plans for recording must be
submitted to the Borough for signature.
7.) Signed recording plan mylars must be delivered
to the Allegheny County Department of Economic Development for
signatures, then the Allegheny County Recorders Offices for
8). Copies of plans as specified in the approval
letter from the Borough must be submitted.
9.) Any money owed to the Borough for an overdrawn
escrow account must be paid prior to permit issuance and the
start of work on the site.
10.) Once all of the above requirements have been
completed an application for a grading permit should be
submitted. Also, 2% of the surety amount shall be paid for
escrow. When the grading permit is issued, this will signal
that work and development of the site may begin.
