The Urbana Subdivision Ordinance is the main tool the City uses to regulate the division of parcels of land.
Occasionally, the Subdivision Ordinance is amended by an ordinance adopted by the City Council. Such amendments may include new regulations, or clarifications and/or deletion of existing regulations. Proposed amendments are first reviewed by staff to determine if they are consistent with the goals and policies outlined in the City's current comprehensive plan. Proposed amendments are then presented to the Urbana Plan Commission and Urbana City Council.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact the Planning Division at (217) 384-2440. Printed copies of the Urbana Subdivision and Land Development Code are available for $10 each at the City Clerk's office located at 400 South Vine Street in downtown Urbana.
PLEASE NOTE: A casual reader of the Urbana Subdivision Ordinance may miss important information located in other sections of the ordinance. In addition amendments to the Ordinance are made from time to time and may not be reflected in the web addition.
It is strongly recommended that before any decisions are made regarding land subdivision information you contact the City of Urbana Planning Division for discussion and clarification.
