A land division or parcel map is the division of any real property, improved or not, shown on the latest assessment roll, for the purpose of sale, lease or financing into four or fewer parcels.
The Planning Commission reviews and makes determinations on tentative parcel maps/land division. After conducting a public hearing to receive input and comment, the Planning Commission sets conditions or standards, makes the required findings, and approves the tentative map. Once the applicant has complied with all of the tentative map conditions, the final map is brought before the Planning Commission for approval. The average processing time for a land division project is six to nine months.
