You might be required to plat, re-replat or rezone a property before you may develop it. This would depend on the current status of the property.
Zoning determines what land uses can be legally placed on the property. There is several steps that are involved for rezoning a property. The zoning process can take about 8-10 weeks. Failure to meet submittal deadlines or incomplete submittals can significantly increase the amount of time required to complete the zoning change process
Undeveloped Property & Re-Platting
A property that is undeveloped may need to be platted before it can be divided or sold. Both the preliminary and final plat stages of the platting process involve several steps and generally take 6-8 weeks each. Property that has been previously platted may have the property lines redrawn or amended through a re-plat. The re-platting process involves several steps and may generally be completed in about 8-10 weeks.
