What is a minor subdivision?

A minor subdivision is a division of land where only 2 lots are created; 1 new lot, and the remainder of the original parcel. Both parcels have new creation dates because of this division. Each lot must meet the dimensional criteria as specified in the zoning ordinance for the district in which it is located. Boundary Line Adjustments (BLA) and Lot Line Vacations are also considered minor subdivisions. BLAs are the way in which one parcel transfers acreage to or from an adjacent property. When 2 or more lots are being combined, it is considered a lot line vacation.
