New houses in a subdivision

Each year, when subdivision applications are approved, thousands of new lots are created. Preliminary plans are checked to make sure there are enough public facilities for the proposed development. Final plats, reservation plats, and vacation petitions contain all the necessary engineering details to accurately locate streets, lots, and boundaries. The Planning Department evaluates these plans through the development review process to ensure they meet the County’s Zoning Ordinance and Subdivision Regulations.
