What is a subdivision?
A subdivision is the division of a lot, parcel, or tract of land into two or more lots for the purpose, whether immediate or future, of ownership transfer or building development with or without proposed new streets. The changing of the dimensions of two existing tax lots where no additional lots are created does not require subdivision approval. This is handled instead through what is called an "Administrative Lot Line Change," for which applications are made to the City Assessor's Office.
