Condominium plats are usually developed in conjunction with a Development Review Board site plan approval process. A condominium plat may also be developed for the purpose of a conversion of an existing structure (apartment building, commercial center) to a condominium. Conversions of existing sites may not always require a Development Review Board approval, but will require an Administrative approval process to determine conformance with ordinance requirements such as parking, drainage, access, etc.
