Lot Splits and Subdivisions


All newly created lots that do not have public sewer needing the Regional or City Planning Commission approval, must be reviewed and approved by the Health Department.  In the county, this means most newly created lots less than 5 acres must be reviewed and approved by this office.  This office reviews each lot to ensure that an onsite sewage system can be installed on the proposed tract of land in compliance with the Ohio Administrative Code 3701-29-08

Additionally, all newly created subdivisions in the county without public sewer will be reviewed by this offfice.  If you have additional questions please contact this office directly or review the lot spilt forms linkee here:  Forms
