Subdivision Ordinance

Click here to view the May 2019 adopted version of the Subdivision Ordinance.

This two-year project had significant input from the public, a citizen advisory group, local design professionals, the Planning and Zoning Commission and the Board of Supervisors.  The updated Subdivision Ordinance addresses the goals of the Comprehensive Plan with the concept of Integrated Conservation Design which encourages conservation areas and protects Environmentally Sensitive Features.  The Subdivision Ordinance offers incentives for well-planned subdivisions and is intended to be more flexible and clear than the previous ordinance with respect to plat amendments and adjustments, phased development, financial assurances and vested rights. Public input has been sincerely appreciated on this important community planning effort. Please contact the Planning and Zoning division with questions.
