Departmental Subdivision Review

Major subdivisions are subject to a two-step approval process. Physical improvements to the land to be subdivided are authorized by approval of the proposed subdivision by the Planning and Zoning Board at the general plan stage, and sale of lots is permitted after final plat approval by the Board of Aldermen, as provided in Section 15-79 (Major subdivision approval process). Minor subdivisions only require a one-step approval process for final plat approval in accordance with section 15-78 (Minor subdivision approval).

Subdivision Plan Departmental Review is required for the development of a subdivision to ensure that requirements of the Land Use Ordinance are met. The Subdivision Plan Departmental Review Committee is composed of Planning, Building Inspections, Fire, Public Works, Engineering, Police, and Public Utilities, working together to render decisions on applications as a single decision-making body. Subdivision plans are reviewed by the committee and approved for subdivision development by the Planning and Zoning Board and Board of Aldermen.
