      (1)   The proposed subdivision is located along an existing public street and does not involve opening, widening or extending any street.
      (2)   Not more than five lots or parcels less than five acres in size are involved after the original tract has been completely subdivided.  An original tract shall be considered to have been completely subdivided when all of lots created as a result of any division are less than five acres.
      (3)   The proposed subdivision is not contrary to applicable subdivision or zoning regulations.  Administrative approval shall not be granted if any variance from either the Zoning Code or these Subdivision Regulations is requested.  Variances to these Subdivision Regulations may only be granted by Council, not the Manager, upon written recommendation of the Planning Commission, and variances to the Zoning Code may only be granted by the Board of Zoning Appeals.
