Subdivision Regulations

Subdivision Regulations establish legal minimum standards for subdivision development. It is the job of the Planning Commission to ensure that proposed subdivisions conform to these adopted standards.

Subdivision 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.
