ApprovedJust an FYI, I'm not disapproving the plans for this, however please verify the scaling on the site plan. when I calibrate to your graphic scale, then try to measure access, I'm getting a lot that is 1200 feet deep - I don't think that is the case.
Disapproved(DISAPPROVED) INSUFFICIENT WATER/HYDRANTS The available fire flows and/or number of hydrants at this location, do not meet the fire code requirements. You have several options: 1) Reduce the Square Footage 2) Install a 2-hour Fire Wall (openings are not permitted) 3) not an option in this situation 4) Install a fire sprinkler system.
