After annexation and initial planning work, legal action must be taken to divide larger pieces of land into smaller pieces for use or sale. Such action is referred to as “subdivision” and can occur at a variety of scales as described below:
Final Plat is the procedure used to process projects that create more than 10 new lots. Final Plats are required to go through the Minor Application Process and are reviewed by town staff and approved by the Planning Commission before final acceptance by the Board of Trustees.
Minor Subdivision can be processed for intermediate-scale projects of up to 10 new lots.
Minor Subdivisions require going through the Minor Application Process and are reviewed by town staff and approved by the Planning Commission before final acceptance by the Board of Trustees.
Right of Way (ROW) Easement/Vacation
ROW/Easement Vacation is a procedure by which the town relinquishes ownership of or legal access to property that it no longer needs for an original purpose such as utility or road maintenance.
ROW/Easement Vacation applications require going through the Major Application Process and are required to go before the Planning Commission and Board of Trustees for approval.
Subdivision Amendment is the smallest and simplest subdivision action. Up to three new lots may be created by a Subdivision Amendment, and no public hearings are required.
