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 &Approval with jurisdiction
  • Public Hearing (if needed for rezone, plat, new public roads, etc.)
  • Construction/Civil Plan Design Review&Approval
  • Site Improvement installation for future lots/houses (i.e. frontage improvements, drainage, sewer and water connections, private roads, clearing and grading)
  • Complete As-Built plans for review & approval with jurisdictions and utility districts
  • Complete Final Plat or Short Plat drawings for review & approval by jurisdiction (includes setting new lot corners)
  • Record Final Plat or Short Plat
