What is an Agricultural Division?
The division of property located wholly within an agricultural zoning district for bona fide agricultural use and not for development purposes, provided that: the original tract of land is divided into parcels consisting of no less than 15 acres each, including the residual of the original tract; no new or extended public streets or other public facilities are required to serve the parcels as divided; the plat depicting the division contains a note stating that the property is to be used for bona fide agricultural purposes only; all parcels created by the division conform with applicable minimum development criteria set out in the city's Zoning Ordinance; no portion of the original tract of land is further subdivided for a period of one year from date of recordation of the plat depicting the agricultural division of land, unless such property has been appropriately rezoned for development.
What is a Resubdivision?
The minor adjustment or vacation of property lines which reallocates or consolidates land area of contiguous lots or parcels, provided that the adjustment or vacation of property lines does not: result in the creation of any additional lots or parcels of land; result in any increase in density or increased impact on public infrastructure; involve or give rise to the need for the dedication, construction, or extension of a public street; or create a nonconformity or increase or aggravate any existing nonconformity as to minimum development and use criteria set out in the city's Zoning Ordinance.
