Frequently Asked Questions
How do I split my parcel?
The No-Plat lot split procedure is found in Section 207 of the DCRPC Subdivision Regulations. An application shall include a deed and survey, approval by the township or county Zoning Officer, the Health Department / Sanitary Engineer, and the County Engineer or ODOT if on a state route.
How do I rezone my land?
An application must be obtained from the township or county zoning authority. The application may require a development plan depending on the type of rezoning. The township or county zoning commission places the application on their monthly agenda and subsequently asks the DCRPC for a recommendation. The DCRPC is required to give a zoning recommendation to the township zoning commission and trustees.
How do I create a subdivision?
When subdividing land, standards for improvements and platting are prescribed by the Delaware County Subdivision Regulations for all land in unincorporated townships.
The subdivision regulations help the land owner understand what type of subdivision they are planning, the necessary information and materials, and the process to follow in order to finalize the plan
From small property divisions to large tract divisions, the regulations provide guidance to the public for accomplishing their goals while meeting the DCRPC’s standards. (For more info see Subdivision Regulations.)
How do I transfer property to another parcel?
The DCRPC requires an original survey and legal description of each new described parcel to be transferred as well as a deed for that parcel (See Subdivision Regulations Section 207.04). The DCRPC may also require the endorsement of zoning and health officials to ensure that the remainder parcel will meet applicable standards.
How do I request a GIS map?
If you need a custom map, the DCRPC has the ability to create one for a fee. The DCRPC staff maintains over 100 GIS layers for the Delaware County. The available GIS data was either created by the Commission staff, or provided by the County Auditor’s Office GIS office or other county agencies.
