Proposed Revisions to St. Louis County Subdivision Regulations
St. Louis County is requesting public comment on proposed revisions to the St. Louis County Subdivision Regulations. The proposed new ordinance will replace Ordinance No. 33, which was adopted in 1993. The revisions are to accommodate changes in state statute, provide greater flexibility in platting, and to provide developers clear direction on the platting process. The proposed ordinance can be found on the website of the county’s Planning & Community Development Department at the following link: http://www.stlouiscountymn.gov/LANDPROPERTY/CommunityDevelopment/PlanningProjects/SubdivisionRevisions.aspx, or a written copy of the proposed ordinance may be requested by calling 218-725-5000.
