Can I divide my property to create another lot?

Any action that proposes changes to a property line requires the property owner to present a professional plan to the Planning Board for signing.

There are generally two methods by which a lot can be divided:

  1. The mutual adjustment of property lines between abutting lots either by sale or exchange, or the creation of new building lots on an existing street, assuming the lots will have sufficient access, area, and frontage.
  2. The formal division or splitting of an existing lot into two or more separate lots, or the construction of new streets combined with new building lots. These kinds of subdivisions are regulated by the state's Subdivision Control Law.
