    1. Lot Split: Procedure Overview
    2. Sec. 12-40. – Definitions
      Lot Split is defined as the division or redivision of a tract or parcel of land into two (2) lots, building sites, or other divisions for the purpose, whether immediate or future, of sale, legacy, or building development. (Ord. No. 1076, 9-24-2002)
    3. There are four basic steps to the Lot Split process: pre-application conference, application submittal, administrative determination and filing/recording. The timeframe from submitting the application to the Community Development Department to approval depends on the number and complexity of comments by the Development Review Committee (DRC).
    4. Step One
    5. Property Owner/Applicant conducts a Pre-Application Conference with the Community Development Department staff to discuss the proposed Lot Split. The specific submittal requirements and procedure will be established by the Community Development Department at this meeting.
    6. Step Two
    7. Property Owner/Applicant submits Lot Split Application and fee. Community Development staff distributes application to DRC and reviews submitted materials and submits comments to the Director of Community Development Department.
    8. Step Three
    9. Following the receipt of DRC comments, the Community Development Department Director makes the final determination, taking into consideration the staff comments and the applicant’s responses. If the proposed lot split meets the conditions of this section and otherwise complies with all applicable laws and ordinances, the director of Community Development shall approve the lot split by affixing his/her signature to the application form.
    10. Step Four
    11. Upon approval of the lot split, the Community Development department shall record the split on the appropriate maps and documents in the department. In addition, lot splits shall be filed with the Hillsborough County Property Appraiser's office and Hillsborough County Clerk of the Court.
