Subdivision Regulations: Practices and Attitudes

A Survey of Public Officials and Developers in the Nation’s Fastest Growing Single Family Housing Markets

Lincoln Institute of Land Policy Working Paper

This study gauges the impacts of subdivision regulations on the design of residential developments and the practices of developers in rapidly growing regions of the country. Through a nationwide survey of jurisdictions which are experiencing rapid development growth and developers who are working in these areas, the study assesses the attitudes and perceptions and identifies the issues within subdivision regulations that members of the housing industry and the regulatory agencies feel are affecting housing development. The study also partially replicates similar research done in 1976 to gain an understanding of changing practices within the last 25 years.
