Q. What are the steps to complete a subdivision?

  • Initial research to determine what may be the governing factors that will dictate how the subdivision is designed (i.e. jurisdiction location, existing sewer location, steep slopes, critical areas, topography, traffic studies, etc.)
  • Boundary and Topographic Survey for design
  • Preliminary Plat or Short Plat Review with jurisdiction
  • Public Hearing (if needed for rezone, plat, new public roads, etc.)
  • Construction Plan Design
  • Site Improvements for future houses (i.e. frontage improvements, drainage, sewer and water connections, private roads, clearing and grading)
  • Complete final plat of short plat drawings for approval by jurisdiction (includes setting new corners)
  • Record Final Plat or Short Plat
