A major subdivision is any division of land into 7 or more lots or any subdivision of land that includes the construction of new street or new right of way, extension of public water or sewer system or the installation of drainage improvement to facilitate residential lot construction. All applications for major subdivisions must follow the Subdivision Review Calendar for submittals of Preliminary Subdivision for Planning Commission review and approval. The deadline for preliminary plan applications is the first Wednesday of each month at 12:00 noon unless adjusted due to the holiday schedule. All preliminary plan applications must be submitted through the Online Permit Development Center – the County’s web portal for electronic plan submittals. The Online Permit Development Center is designed to streamline plan review, permit online fee collection, and allow staff and applicants to track projects.

Staff will review all applications for completeness upon submission. If received a week prior to the application deadline, the applicant or authorized representative will be notified via email of any deficiencies. If not complete and received the week of the deadline, the application will be rejected and will be required to schedule a pre-submittal meeting. Likewise, if complete, the applicant will be notified via email and the project will proceed to the current month’s SAC meeting.

Pre-Application Meetings

Pre-submittal meetings are highly recommended, but not required unless an incomplete, inaccurate, or erroneous process submittal is not accepted. This is to identify the proper process and ensure that the applicant can meet approval criteria, therefore streamlining reviews. Pre-submittal meetings for subdivisions are scheduled with Subdivision Administration in accordance with the Subdivision Review Calendar. Pre-submittal meetings are generally scheduled for 30 minute appointments on the 3rd Thursday of each month between 2-4 pm. The pre-submittal application deadline is always for the Friday before the scheduled pre-submittal meeting date but always consult the Subdivision Review Calendar for the actual date. To schedule a pre-application meeting, contact the Administrative Support Specialist at 864.467.5764. A completed pre-submittal request form and a conceptual plan to scale must be submitted.
