A new subdivision is created when a large parcel is divided into 6 or more smaller parcels when any one of these parcels is smaller than 36-acres. The Cochise County Subdivision Regulations contain the procedures for creating a new subdivision. The purpose of the Subdivision Regulations is to implement the Comprehensive Plan Goals of promoting orderly growth, providing for adequate roads, utilities, water and wastewater treatment, ensuring that structures are not built in areas subject to flooding and ensuring an accurate legal description when dividing a large parcel into smaller lots for sale.
