Minor Subdivisions are those subdivisions which involve the creation of five (5) or less lots. Minor Subdivisions are approved administratively by the Subdivision Administrator in the Planning Department upon submission of a subdivision plat. The Subdivision Administrator may request to hold the plat for review on a case by case basis.
The fee for Minor Subdivisions is $100.00 per each new lot created.
