A subdivision of land involving less than 5 parcels, any one of which is less than 5 acres, is a minor subdivision. Approvals for septic systems (Health Department) and central sewer (Water Resources) are required. All parcels must meet zoning requirements and the survey must have a zoning inspector’s signature. The review takes 7 working days.
