Subdivision of Land
The subdivision ordinance, along with the Comprehensive Land Use Plan, helps manage the subdivision of land within the City. The ordinance provides regulations concerning the coordination of streets, utilities and drainage, which helps foster efficient and orderly urban growth compatible with the natural environment and prevents premature subdivision.
Subdivision consists of the following steps:
The purpose of a Concept Plan is for the developer to present the general plan of development and receive comments from the City regarding general requirements, minimum standards of design, and required improvements as set forth in the City Ordinances. This plan will aid the developer in preparing a more readily accepted Preliminary Plan and prevent costly revisions in the layout and development of a subdivision.
