To provide for the harmonious development of the City of Paducah, the City Commission has enacted Land Subdivision Regulations, Chapter 102 of the Paducah Code of Ordinances.
The City of Paducah defines a subdivision as a division of real property, improved or unimproved, or portion thereof shown on the last preceding tax roll as a unit or as contiguous units, into two or more parcels, lots, sites or other division of land, with or without streets, for the purpose of immediate or future sale, transfer of ownership, or building development.
This section details and outlines the City's subdivision review process, including review by Department staff, their concerns and the schedules and timetables within the review process. There are two types of subdivision processes. Minor subdivisions are generally four or less lots with no public dedications and is generally a shorter process. Major subdivision are generally five or more lots and/or subdivisions with public dedications that will require City Commission acceptance. Click Subdivision Process for more information.
