Subdivisions are original surveys of land which divide larger tracts into lots or smaller tracts. A boundary survey of the tract to re-establish the boundaries and corners of the tract, and, in some cases, a topographic survey for design, may be required before the land can be subdivided. A housing development would be one example of a subdivision. Subdivision of land can be a lengthy process. Most municipalities have Subdivision and Land Development ordinances which require provisions for the proposed lots to be served by sanitary sewer, water, electric/gas, etc. Subdivisions usually require approval by a municipal or county planning commission. Lang Surveying provides subdivision design of lots and streets/roads and coordinates with others for the necessary utility requirements. We also file the paperwork necessary for planning commission approval, attend the planning commission meetings and prepare deed descriptions of new lots.
