Subdivision Regulation

The act of splitting one lot into two or more lots is known as subdivision. In Golden Valley, this action requires approval by the City Council. A property owner wishing to subdivide a residential lot must submit information to the City for review. If the standards established in the City Code are met, the City must approve the subdivision.

The subdivision process does not allow for the review or approval of the location or design of any new structures. It does, however, define the building envelope, or area within the lot where a future home may be built.

Chapter 109 of the Golden Valley City Code outlines specific requirements for subdivisions.
