The County subdivision process applies when a property owner splits a parcel into six or more parcels that are each less than thirty-six (36) acres. Purpose of the Subdivision Process:

  • Promote orderly growth and sensitive design;
  • Provide for adequate roads, utilities, water and wastewater treatment for residential growth;
  • Ensure structures are not built in areas that are subject to flooding;
  • Divide a large parcel into smaller lots for sale

It is helpful to schedule a preliminary meeting with County planning staff to answer questions before formal subdivision submittal.
