BIG RED DOG Engineering and Consulting is pleased to offer our new e-Book, “Land Subdivision: A Practical Guide for Central Texas”, free to our BIG RED Blog subscribers and visitors.
The land development process in central Texas can be broken down into three general components:
1) zoning and/or land use entitlements, 2) land subdivision, and 3) construction permits – subdivision construction, site development, building, etc.
The second stage of the process is the legal subdivision of land, the culmination of which typically results in the creation of an officially recorded subdivision plat. Is is this land subdivision process which is explained in our new e-Book.
All real property in the State of Texas is subject to subdivision regulations, whether imposed by a county, a municipality, or both. Land subdivision is becoming increasingly complicated, evolving from what was once a very simple exercise of dividing land into multiple parts, creating blocks and lots, and laying out streets and parkland.
The practice today invites a (potentially) complex review process that includes multiple applications, input from various jurisdictional review authorities, detailed engineering studies, and public notification and requisite public hearings prior to approval. It is critical for the modern land development professional, be it attorney, engineer, developer, surveyor, or other real estate consultant to be knowledgeable about the land subdivision process in order to protect the best interests of those involved.
