Subdividing Property



Nearly all land divisions in Minnesota are regulated by local authorities. Ordinance 60 regulates the subdivision of land outside of municipalities (cities). An improperly created parcel or lot split can result in the inability to obtain land use permits for structures on new or remnant parcels or lots.
