Subdivisions

A subdivision is the process of dividing a larger parcel of land into smaller individual lots, parcels, or tracts. This division is often undertaken for various purposes, such as real estate development, land use optimization, property sales, or estate planning. Larger subdivision projects may integrate the development of roads, utility systems, and drainage facilities to accommodate the needs of the newly created lots.

WHY SUBDIVIDE?

Subdivisions cater to a range of purposes, from residential neighborhoods and commercial developments to industrial complexes. Ultimately, the subdivision process aims to organize property use, promote organized growth, and contribute to the effective and sustainable development of the land while adhering to local regulations.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

To start subdividing, a plan must be created that outlines the anticipated new lots and any necessary infrastructure. Local rules and regulations are referred to ensure the plan aligns with requirements for requirements such as lot size and road placement. Precise boundary surveys, elevation assessments, and infrastructure design are executed to confirm accuracy and compliance with established standards. Once the plan is prepared, submission is made to the local planning office along with any relevant documents for approval. Changes may be requested by the regulatory agencies to ensure compliance with local and state regulations. After approval from regulators and clients, the final plan is recorded with the county. It is important to remember some steps may vary depending on local regulations, so working closely with officials and utilizing Professional Surveyors is paramount to success.
