State and federal permits<div class="ExternalClassDBEA143400494247805C0E4CCB8441D0"><p>​The City of Charlotte requires that any necessary state and federal permits be included with a project's plan review submittal. The City also performs a field inspection for all rezoning requests​​ and checks for wetland and stream presence on the property. This process helps ensure that a project's plans do not inadvertently violate another agency's regulations. We recommend that you or your wetland consultant contact the <a href="http://www.saw.usace.army.mil/">United States Army Corps of Engineers</a> (USACE) regarding specific requirements.​​</p></div>
