Resubdivision of land or changes to a recorded plat shall be considered a subdivision and
it shall comply with these subdivision regulations with the following exceptions:

1. Lot lines may be revised from those shown on the recorded plat (without compliance
with the subdivision regulations), provided that in making such changes:

a. No lot or parcel of land shall be created of sold that is less than the minimum
requirements for the area or dimension as established by these regulations or other
applicable regulations or ordinances;
b. Drainage easements reserved for drainage shall not be changed, unless supported by
complete engineering data;
c. Street locations and street rights of way shall not be changed; and
d. The plat shall not be altered in any way which will adversely affect the character of
the plat filed.

the sub-divider shall be required to file the final plat with an affidavit witnessed by the
land surveyor, concerning the change which shall be approved by the Board. If, however,
the correction of the error results in such major alterations that the corrected plat no
longer meets the design standards and criteria of these regulations, then the corrected plat
shall require full approval procedures and the recording of a corrected plat.

A copy of all final plat revisions shall be submitted to the Board for its review. Where
the Resubdivision complies with the appropriate requirements off these regulations, a
record plat indicating the Resubdivision shall be submitted to the Board for its
endorsements, prior to the filing of such plat with the County Clerk and Recorder. Such
plats shall specifically indicate the revisions being made compared to the previously
recorded plat.

The County shall maintain an adequate numbered filing system for all subdivisions
including copies of all maps, data, and County actions. It shall also maintain a master
location map (or maps) referenced to the filing system, for public use and examination.

8.9-6.B. Correction Plat and Replat Procedures

A replat of a subdivision shall be subject to and shall comply with the entire subdivision
regulations, except for the following procedures considered to be correction plats:

   1. Lot lines may be revised from those shown on the recorded plat, provided that in
      making such changes:
         a. No additional lot or parcel is created;
         b. Easements reserved for drainage are not changed, unless supported by
              complete engineering data;
         c. Street locations and street rights of way are not changed; and
         d. The Plat is not altered in any way which will adversely affect the character
              of the previously filed plat.

      shall be required to file the final plat with an affidavit witnessed by the land
      surveyor concerning the change, which shall be presented to the Board for
      consideration. If, however, the correction of the error results in such major
      alterations that the correction plat no longer meets the design standards and
      criteria of these regulations, then the plat may only be approved after the
      considerations pursuant to the full subdivision process.

A copy of all final plat revisions shall be submitted to the Board for its review. Where
the replat or correction plat complies with the appropriate requirements of these
regulations, such plat shall be submitted to the Board for its endorsement prior to the
filing of such plat with the County Clerk and Recorder. All replats and correction plats
shall specifically state the revisions that were made from the previously recorded plat.

The County shall maintain an adequate numbered filing system for all subdivisions,
including copies of all maps, data and County actions. The County shall also maintain a
master location map(s) referenced to the filing system for public use and examination.

Item 2: Revise or clarify the special use permit regulations to address the
Commissioner’s desires regarding Ponds and water resource work, prospecting and

                                   CORRECTION
The County Planning Commission met on April 22, 2010 to discuss and take action on
the water resources development issue; and, recommended the removal of the definition
of water resources development from Section. 10.3-47 of the Zoning and Development
Regulation. This would involve deleting Section “e” entitled Water Resource
Development, from Rural Area District 1- RAD, Section 2.6-3 Special Uses by Permit
Only from Rural Area District 2 – RAD 2, Section 2.7-2 Special Uses by Permit Only.

This was recommended for removal because the State and Federal Government already
regulates jurisdictional water resources and there is no need for regulation of non-
jurisdictional water resources.

The following format is used to recommend the following change to Item 2 of the
proposed revisions to the Zoning and Development Regulations.
