Rural Subdivisions

Rural Subdivisions divide land into five or more lots. Rural subdivision regulations apply specifically to those areas classified as rural residential in the Comprehensive Plan and/or the Land Use Code (CCC 18.50). They involve lots greater than one acre, usually with private roads. Rural subdivisions are reviewed by County Planning Staff and other interested agencies, but must be reviewed by the Board of County Commissioners after public hearing and review and recommendation by the County Planning Commission.
