Beginner’s Guide to the Subdivision Review Process

The subdivision review process begins when tentative maps, final maps and improvement plans are submitted with plan review fees. Other documents may be required depending on the type and location of the subdivision.

Note: Maps and plans must be submitted in order. You may submit maps and plans as follows:
