Subdivision of land is regulated by Chapter 175 of the Marion Code of Ordinances. Subdivision (or land division) regulations provide the procedures and standards for dividing a large parcel of land into smaller parcels for sale and development. Subdivision regulations require a developer to meet certain conditions in order to record a plat.
Subdivision regulations address the quality of development (the availability of public services, services that the sub divider of the property must provide, the layout of the site, etc.). The way in which lands are divided play a key role in the orderly development of the community.
Once land is divided into
lots and streets are laid out, development patterns are set. Subdivision
controlled ordinances often give a community its only opportunity to ensure
that new neighborhoods are properly designed. Failure to plan for the
subdivision of land is felt in many areas such as tax burdens, the high cost of
extending utilities, street and traffic problems, overcrowded schools and a
loss of a sense of community.
