Technical Review Committee

The Technical Review Committee (TRC) is made up of members from various city departments, school representatives, and area utilities. The committee reviews projects proposed for development, meeting to review:

  • Site Development Plans
  • Primary Subdivision Plans
  • Secondary Subdivision Plans
  • Plat Vacations & Amendments

The TRC maintains a Plan Review Status for all projects. Once projects are given final approval, Planning Division staff coordinates permit issuance to allow site work to begin.

Revised plans can be submitted to the Planning Division any time after the TRC meeting in which the project was addressed. Please refer to the Plan Submittal Guidelines for the needed quantity of plans, necessary accompaniments and the general procedures used to expedite your plan review.

For a copy of a TRC report for a specific project, or to review the status of a current project, contact the Planning Division at planning@greenwood.in.gov or 317.881.8698.
