I have a large parcel of land. Can it be subdivided into smaller lots?

Individual parcels of land may be subdivided if the new lots meet the requirements of the zone within which they are categorized. Each zone requires a certain minimum lot size, street frontage, and building line (yard/setback) requirement, as designated by the Zoning Ordinance. If these zoning requirements (along with those of the Subdivision Regulations) can be satisfied, new lots may be created through the subdivision process.
