• Standard Subdivisions involve the creation of lots that must meet the dimensional requirements of the Zoning District the land is located in. For Example, the Rural zone requires lot sizes to be 100,000 SF in area with 200 feet of road frontage. This results in more road needing to be built. 
  • Standard Subdivisions with 5 lots or less require no Open Space.
  • Standard Subdivisions that have 6 to 9 lots require a minimum of 10% Open Space
  • Standard Subdivisions with 10 or more lots require a minimum of 35% Open Space
  • These developments require review and approval by the Planning Board. 
  • A standard subdivision layout impacts a greater area of land and dedicates less Open Space.
