PLEASANT VIEW — This city wants to be more friendly to small subdivisions, Mayor Doug Clifford said, and in accordance approved an amendment to the consolidated fee schedule for subdivisions and special exceptions fees.
“We are seeing more small subdivisions in the city,” Clifford said. Smaller subdivisions are those with five or fewer lots.
“In recent years, more than not, development is occurring on small projects,” said Community Development Director Bruce Talbot. “Smaller (projects) don’t require a whole lot of review on our part. For some of them there is no dedication of roads, not anything we have to review in a strenuous way. We wanted to establish a separate fee for those. Our fees are not outrageous; they are in line with other communities.”
