Subdividing Residential Property

Considerations


The prospect of subdividing a residential property is complicated and depends on various factors. When subdividing, the newly created lots must comply with the below lot areas specific to the zoning district of the property, as well as comply with the below lot width requirements. If the subdivided lots can meet the requirements for their specific zoning district, than you can proceed to contact the Development and Planning Services Department to further discuss a request to subdivide a property.

Standards


If the proposed subdivision would create a lot that is unable to meet the standards, an amendment to the Zoning Code to accommodate the proposed subdivision would be needed.
