Maps are required to demonstrate the project is located within a certain distance from amenities and features located outside of the building site.
When providing maps, ensure that the areas that confirm compliance are highlighted and/or annotated.
- Visual representation of the project and a larger context (e.g. site, campus or city).
- Annotations to indicate the amenity’s location and required information.
- Annotations to indicate project’s location and main building entrance.
- Indication of walking route and distance between the main building entrance and the required amenity.
