PROPERTY SUBDIVISION

The term “subdivision” refers to the division of a tract of land into one or more parcels for the purposes of sale, transfer, or development.  The legal land subdivision process is required and the City of Weston is the permitting authority for subdivision within the city limts and in its Extra Territorial Jurisdiction (ETJ).  Platting is a geographical description that aids in recording and deed description and does not necessarily involve subdivision.
