regulationsSubdivision regulations set standards for streets, drainage ways, sewage disposal, water systems, and other aspects of public welfare.

Subdivision regulations are needed to protect communities and ensure building lots provide a wholesome living environment for future residents. These regulations ensure adequate lot size, public access, and the availability of public services to each lot created. They also help to conserve natural, scenic, historic, and recreational areas.

Subdivision regulations eliminate the need for excessive public expenditures by making the developer responsible for the installation of basic public facilities before the recording and sale of lots.

There are subdivisions and lot splits. Each type is subject to regulations administered by the Planning Commission. Click on the links below to access permits, forms, and additional information on the fee structure, the process, or regulations.
