Subdivisions are classified into two categories: Major and Minor. Minor subdivisions of property may be approved administratively by the Planning Office. A minor subdivision is any creation of two tracts of land, plus the parent tract, or a transfer and consolidation of property. Only one minor subdivision is permitted for a parent tract. Any additional divisions require full Planning Commission review and approval, in accordance with major subdivision requirements.Before submitting a minor subdivision plat to the Planning Office, the following is necessary:
- Health Department approval and signature
- Owner signature
- Six (6) copies of the plat
Major subdivisions of property include the division of three (3) or more lots, requiring the extension of roads, or on property that has a previously approved minor plat. Major subdivisions require review and approval by the Planning Commission. All applications for major subdivisions must be submitted by the filing deadline and include an application, appropriate fee, and seventeen (17) copies of the plat.
