Below is the information that appears on the Metro Planning Commissions website concerning the recent changes to the subdivision requirements.
The Planning Commission voted 9-0 on January 9 to amend the Subdivision Regulations; the draft amendments as approved, with track changes from the previous version of the Regulations, are posted below. A reformatted, final version of that document is being prepared and will be posted soon on our Subdivision Regulations page.
The changes included several housekeeping amendments and a substantive change to Section 3-5, Infill Subdivisions. Section 3-5 will differentiate between established areas and areas where additional development is anticipated, based on the land use or character policy in the Community Plan. In established areas, a formula is provided to determine compatibility with the character of the area.
