The purpose of a Minor Plat is to provide a limited means for simple land division under certain circumstances, which result in minimal lot creation.
In circumstances where adequate infrastructure, easements, and Right-of-Way are already exists and the extension of any city facilities to serve any lot within the subdivision is not required, then a Minor Plat may be suitable as an instrument to subdivide one (1) lot into three (3) or fewer lots.
In agreement with the intent of the Subdivision Regulations, Minor Plats are intended to ensure that public facilities are available and will have sufficient capacity to serve the proposed subdivision. Additionally, Minor Plats are intended to ensure the future growth and development of the entire city by ensuring new development does not hinder the provision of public facilities and services to neighboring and nearby properties.
A mandatory pre-application conference with city staff is required at least 7 days before a formal Minor Plat application can be submitted. The pre-application conference is intended to allow for the exchange of non-binding information between the applicant and city staff to ensure that the applicant is informed of pertinent city development regulations and processes. The pre-application conference provides and opportunity for the applicant and city staff to discuss major development considerations such as utilities, roadways, drainage concerns, comprehensive plan elements, specific neighborhood characteristics and historic information.
