[Ord. No. 777 §26-26, 3-23-1994]
The intent of this Article is to provide for the subdivision of a tract or lot into not more than four (4) lots, including any remainder proposed to be retained by the owner, provided that public improvements are not required and the resulting lots shall not again be divided without replatting. The Commission shall approve or disapprove minor subdivisions in accordance with the provisions of this Article.
[Ord. No. 777 §26-27, 3-23-1994]
An application for minor subdivision approval shall be submitted to the City Clerk no less than fifteen (15) days prior to the scheduled Commission meeting. The application shall be accompanied by eight (8) copies of the following:
A certified survey, signed and sealed by a registered land surveyor, of the lot(s) and the location of any structure(s) thereon, together with the exact nature, location and dimension of the proposed minor subdivision.
The Commission shall review applications for minor subdivisions based on the following guidelines:
No minor subdivisions shall be approved if:
More than four (4) lots will be created.
New streets or alleys are needed or proposed.
A vacation of streets, alleys, easements, setback lines or access control is needed or proposed.
There is less street right-of-way than required by this Chapter, unless such dedication can be made by separate instrument.
A substandard sized lot will be created.
The subdivision will result in a lot or tract without direct access to a street.
The extension of a public water or sewer system is needed or proposed.
The installation of drainage improvements through one (1) or more lots to serve one (1) or more other lots is needed or proposed.
The subdivision will result in significant increases in utilities and services levels or will interfere with maintaining existing utilities and services (e.g., traffic control, street maintenance, etc.).
The tract or lot to be subdivided has been previously created through the minor subdivision procedures of this Chapter.
The Commission shall make a determination within thirty (30) working days of the meeting at which the minor subdivision is considered and make its recommendation and findings of fact to the Board of Aldermen. If the subdivision is disapproved, the Commission shall provide the applicant with a written statement of the reasons for denial within ten (10) days of action by the Commission. The Board of Aldermen shall then proceed at their next regular or special meeting to consider for approval the proposed subdivision.
Approval of the minor subdivision is contingent upon the survey being recorded within sixty (60) days after the certificate of approval is signed by the Commission Secretary.
