A parcel of land that was in single ownership on the effective date of this chapter may be divided, as a minor subdivision, into not more than five lots, including the balance of the original tract as one of the five. The balance of the original tract, if any, or of any of the lots created, shall be further divided only as a major subdivision. A minor subdivision shall not involve the creation of any new street.
(A) Sketch plan or preliminary plan. Prior to the submission of the actual plat, the subdivider is encouraged to submit a sketch plan and consult informally with the Plan Commission. This will enable the subdivider to become familiar with the general requirements and conditions affecting the subdivision and avoid unnecessary revisions. The sketch plan should be in a tentative form with sufficient detail for informal review and comments. A preliminary plan, showing greater detail may also be used for the initial meeting with the Plan Commission.
