Literally speaking, a subdivision is the division or re-division of a lot, tract, or parcel of land into two or more lots, tracts or parcels. This includes any adjustments to existing lot lines of a recorded lot (by any means). Land Development Projects include projects in which one or more lots, tracts or parcels of land are to be developed or redeveloped as a coordinated site for a complex of uses, units, or structures, including planned development and/or cluster development for residential, commercial, institutional, recreational, open space and/or mixed uses as may be provided for in the Zoning Ordinance.Subdivisions are broken down into following three distinct categories:
Administrative Subdivision– Constitutes the re-subdivision of existing lots that yields no additional lots for development, and involves no creation or extension of streets. This type of subdivision only involves divisions, mergers, mergers and division or adjustments of boundaries of existing lots. Listed below are the documents associated with filing for an Administrative Subdivision: Application for Administrative Subdivisions
Minor Subdivision– Constitutes a plan for residential development that requires the subdivision of land into buildable lots, does not propose more than five (5) lots or dwelling units, and does not require any waivers from, or modifications to the Subdivision Regulations.
Major Subdivision– Constitutes a subdivision that is not classified as either an Administrative Subdivision or a Minor Subdivision (as described above).
Land Development Projects are broken down into following two distinct categories:
