DRAWINGS AND ILLUSTRATIONS
Three types of illustrations are needed to properly depict the work to be undertaken. These illustrations or drawings are identified as a Vicinity Map, a Plan View or a Typical Cross-
Section Map. Identify each illustration with a figure or attachment number.
Please submit one original, or good quality copy, of all drawings on 8 1/2xll inch plain white paper (tracing paper or film may be substituted). Use the fewest number of sheets necessary for your drawings or illustrations.
Each illustration should identify the project, the applicant, and the type of illustration (vicinity map, plan view or cross-section). While illustrations need not be professional (many small, private project illustrations are prepared by hand), they should be clear, accurate and contain all necessary information.
