The requirements for a minor subdivision apply only to property that lies within a residential zoning district.
- An overall tract in single ownership is divided into not more than a total of six lots.
- The proposed division is not part of an overall tract previously approved as a Minor Subdivision.
- All proposed lots must meet or exceed the dimensional requirements of the Land Development Regulation (LDR) Code, and required easements for utility, drainage, conservation, or other purposes must be delineated for transfer to the Town as part of the development order.
- All lots must front on a publicly or privately paved street.
- No new streets are proposed or required.
- No dedication of access right-of-way, drainage area, conservation areas or other publicly maintained property is necessary and proposed in order to make the subdivision feasible.
- If any lot abuts a publicly maintained road that does not conform to the right-of-way specifications provided or adopted by reference in the Town’s LDRs, the owner shall be required to dedicate the required right-of-way width necessary to meet the minimum design standards.
- Flag lots are not allowed.
- A well or septic tank may be allowed per the Water and Sewer Standard Specifications chapter of the LDRs.
Prior to the property being divided, it must be reviewed and approved by the Town. A summary of the review and approval process follows:
The completed minor subdivision application, along with the applicable fee, must be submitted to the Growth Management Department no later than thirty days in advance of a regularly scheduled Technical Review Committee (TRC) meeting in order to be considered at that meeting. The staff may request the assistance of the Town Engineering consultant and the Town attorney if needed. The TRC meetings are posted public meetings. The applicant will be informed of the date and time of the TRC meeting for which the application is scheduled.
The application must include the following information:
- Property owner name, address and legal description of property.
- Current zoning of subject parcel and whether a rezoning will be required.
- Size and number of proposed lots.
- Adjacent street name and classification.
- Type and square footage of existing building on parcel.
- Information regarding adjacent right-of-way or easements.
- Boundary and improvement survey.
- Source and location of water and sewer facilities.
The minor subdivision application shall be reviewed by the TRC and recommendations shall be made to the Town Commission. The Commission, at a public hearing, shall review the request and approve, approve with conditions, or deny the request. The property owner or the owner’s agent must be present at the public hearing. Upon approval of the minor subdivision, separate deeds for each lot or parcel and any easements required must be prepared and recorded. Copies of these documents must be submitted to the Town Clerk’s Office.
The above requirements are intended to provide only a general overview of the minor subdivision process. Minor Subdivision requirements are specified in Lady Lake Ordinance 94-08 Land Development Regulations, adopted August 15, 1994, and are available at Town Hall.
