The Cass County Board of Commissioners adopted the Cass County Subdivision Ordinance on March 6, 2006 to implement the goals, objectives, and policies of the Cass County Comprehensive Plan pursuant to the authority granted by the Home Rule Charter of Cass County and Chapter 11-09.1 of the North Dakota Century Code.
The Subdivision Ordinance encourages well-planned, efficient, and safe development of land and can further be defined into two classifications:
Minor Subdivision: A division of land into lots, tracts, or parcels not exceeding four (4) buildable lots. Minor subdivisions require a public hearing before the Planning Commission and final approval by the County Commission.
Major Subdivision: A division of land into lots, tracts, or parcels exceeding four (4) buildable lots. Major subdivisions require a preliminary and final public hearing before the Planning Commission and final approval by the County Commission.
