THE REVIEW PROCESS
SECTION 301: SUBDIVISION DEFINITION AND CLASSIFICATION
THE OHIO REVISED CODE IN SECTION 711.001 SPECIFICALLY DEFINES A SUBDIVISION AS:
A. The division of any parcel of land shown as a unit or as contiguous units on the last preceding tax roll, into two or more parcels, sites, or lots, anyone of which is less than five acres for the purpose, whether immediate or future, of transfer of ownership, provided, however, that the division or partition of land into parcels of more than five acres not involving any new streets or easements of access, and the sale or exchange of parcels between adjoining lot owners where such sale or exchange does not create additional building sites, shall be exempted; or
B. The improvement of one or more parcels of land for residential, commercial or industrial structures or groups of structures involving the division or allocation of land for the opening, widening, or extension of any street or streets, except private streets serving industrial structures; the division or allocation of land as open spaces for common use by owners, occupants or lease holders or as easements for the extension and maintenance of public sewer, water, storm drainage or other public facilities.
Part (A) of the above definition refers to two types of land subdivision, "minor subdivisions" (also known as lot splits or cutups) and "platted subdivisions" (also known as formal subdivisions) in which no improvements are required. It is noteworthy that all divisions of land in Ohio are deemed subdivisions except:
1) the division of land into parcels of more than five (5) acres in size that does not involve the creation of new streets or easements of access; and
2) the transfer of parcels of land between adjoining property owners where additional building sites are not created.
Part (B) of the above definition refers to "platted subdivisions" in which improvements are required. Note that actual division of land is not a prerequisite for qualification as a subdivision. Any improvement of land for residential, commercial, or industrial purposes which involves the allocation of land for:
1) streets (except private streets serving industrial structures)
2) open spaces for common use by owners, occupants, or lease holders, or
3) easements of the extension and maintenance of public sewer, water storm drainage or other public facilities.
is legally a subdivision in the State of Ohio.
For the purpose of these regulations the review process for "platted subdivision" is defined in section 302 thru 311 of this Article. Section 312 defines the review process for "minor subdivision" approval.
SECTION 302: INTRODUCTION

A. Preliminary Meeting;
B. Preliminary Plat Review and Approvals, and Construction Plans; with Subdivision
Application submittal; and,
C. Final Plat Review and Approval, with Subdivision Application submittal.
SECTION 303: PRELIMINARY MEETING
The Preliminary Meeting with the Community Development Director is intended to provide the applicant with an opportunity to resolve problems with respect to a subdivision early in the proceedings and to make necessary modifications and revisions prior to incurring the expense of preparing a Preliminary and Final Plat.
The Preliminary Consultation does not require a formal application, fee or the filing of a plat. A Preliminary Subdivision Application and a preliminary Sketch Plan containing the following information is all that is required for review:
A. Proposed layout of streets, lots and other elements basic to the proposed use in relationship to site conditions; and,
B. Proposed methods for sewage collection, storm drainage, water supply and other utilities.
The Preliminary Sketch Plan may be a pencil drawing superimposed upon a print or a topographic survey of the area proposed to be subdivided or may be in any other graphic medium and form containing the above information.
The preliminary application and sketch drawing are reviewed by the following Village Officials:
A. Community Development Director
B. Utility Foreman
C. Street Superintendent
D. Fire Chief
E. Police Chief
F. Village Engineer
Comments by each of the above officials, and a summary of the proposed subdivision are forwarded to the Applicant, the Chairman of the Planning Commission, Village Engineer and Village Council.
SECTION 304: PRELIMINARY PLAT REVIEW

SUBDIVISION DESIGN STANDARDS
SECTION 401: GENERAL STATEMENT
All the regulations in this Article shall control the manner in which streets, lots, and other elements of a subdivision are arranged on the land. These design controls shall help insure convenient and safe streets, creation of usable lots, provision of space for public utilities, and reservation of land for recreational uses. The planning of attractive and functional neighborhoods shall be promoted, minimizing the undesirable features of unplanned, haphazard growth.
The Planning Commission has the responsibility for reviewing the design of each future subdivision early in its design development. The Commission shall insure that all of the requirements of this Article are met.
SECTION 402 CONFORMITY TO DEVELOPMENT PLANS AND ZONING
No final plat of land shall be approved unless it conforms with the Village of New Richmond Zoning Ordinance.
SECTION 403 CAPABILITY/SUITABILITY OF LANDS AND SOILS
If the Village of New Richmond Planning Commission finds that lands or soils proposed to be subdivided are incapable or unsuitable for subdivision development for any use due to the attributes listed of a Conservation District and/or a Conservation/Buffer District as defined in this section; and/or if the subdivision as proposed causes hazard or abuse of such features based on the comments, conditions or exceptions offered by the Village Administrator, Utility Foreman, Street Superintendent, Fire Chief, Police Chief; the Commission shall not approve the land for subdivision unless or until the subdivider has submitted plans and assurances to the satisfaction of the Commission and review agent (s) that the land and soil can be used without hazard, contamination or degradation.

SECTION 404: STREET DESIGN STANDARDS
A. General Street Design Policies: to promote a coherent and efficient system of streets in the Village of New Richmond, the Planning Commission will:
1. Encourage the use of collector streets to serve minor residential streets wherever possible:
2. Discourage the frequent intersection of local residential streets with arterials:
3. Require proposed street systems to be compatible with the existing and/or proposed pattern of surrounding streets and land uses.

4. When considered desirable and practical, encourage the provision of interconnecting streets to adjacent property in such a manner as to provide for the orderly development of said adjacent property.

5. Encourage an arrangement of subdivision streets that display a positive relationship to on-site natural conditions.
6. Encourage street designs that enhance the residential amenity of new subdivisions by creating interesting visual perspectives and a sense of privacy.

7. Require street lights on all streets.
8. Sidewalks on all streets.
B. Functional Street Classification System:
1. Arterial streets: serve both as feeders to expressways and as principle travel ways between major land use concentrations. The primary function of arterial streets is traffic service. Consequently, direct land service functions should be minimized and high standards for curb cuts and driveways should be applied to protect arterial street capacities so they may function according to design.
2. Collector Streets: are designed to provide both land service and traffic movement functions. They serve as the intermediate feeders between local streets and arterials and primarily accommodate short trips.

3. Local Streets: are designed primarily to provide a land service function, and are intended to accommodate very localized, short trips.
C. All street construction shall be in accordance with the Village of New Richmond Design Standards located in the appendix of these regulations.
D. Special street Types: The following requirements shall apply to special street types:

1. Permanent dead-end streets shall not be permitted. Temporary dead-end streets shall be permitted only as part of a continuing street plan.
2. Dedication of new half-streets shall not be permitted. Where a dedicated or platted half-street exists adjacent to the tract being subdivided, the other half shall be platted.

3. Alleys shall not be approved in residential subdivision, except where justified by extreme conditions. Alleys may be required in commercial and industrial districts if other provisions cannot be made for adequate services access. The minimum widths for alleys shall be thirty (30) feet for the right-of-way and eighteen (18) feet for the pavement width.
4. Private streets may be permitted by the Planning Commission in platted subdivisions provided they meet the following requirements:
a. All private streets shall be constructed to satisfy the same requirements set out in these regulations and all other county specifications and requirements for the construction of public streets.
b. A Home Owners Association or other appropriate method is established to maintain the street system.
c. Private streets should not be planned to be extended to adjacent properties.

E. Intersection Design Standards:

1. The design and improvement standards for intersections are suggested minimums for all streets intersections in subdivisions. All such intersections shall be designed and constructed in accordance with the standards as specified in Table 5.
2. Multiple intersections involving junctions of more than two (2) streets shall be avoided.
3. Four-way intersections of local streets should be avoided and three-way or T- intersection shall be encouraged wherever possible.
4. Low points which would result in water ponding or poor visibility shall not be permitted.
F. Street Names:
Names of new streets shall not duplicate or nearly duplicate the names of existing streets of record or streets for which design plans have been approved.
New Streets which are extensions of or in alignment with existing streets shall bear the name of the existing streets.
SECTION 405: SIDEWALKS
A. As a general policy the Planning Commission shall require sidewalks along all regional arterials, suburban arterials and primary collectors streets. Sidewalks
shall also be generally required along both sides of new collector streets, multi-family subdivision streets.
B. Sidewalks shall be required along both sides of all local streets and cul-de-sac streets except in subdivisions where all lots are 20,000 square feet or larger and all lots have a lot width of 100 feet or more at the building line.
C. The Planning Commission may require sidewalks in any situation where proximity of the proposed subdivision to future or existing neighboring businesses, schools, community facilities or other pedestrian traffic generators, suggest sidewalks will be needed.
D. All required sidewalks shall be built in accordance with the Village of New Richmond Standards and Specifications.
E. The Planning Commission shall make a determination of need during each subdivision review and shall take into consideration any unique or unusual local conditions that would render unreasonable strict adherence to the above policies. If during this review the Planning Commission declares that subsections (a) thru (c) of section 405 cannot be met the Planning Commission may waive the requirement for sidewalks.
SECTION 406: CURBS, GUTTERS, AND STORM SEWERS
A. Curbs, gutters, and storm sewers shall be required in all subdivisions except in subdivisions where all lots are one acre or larger and have a lot width of 125 feet or more at the building lines. However, curbs, gutters, and storm sewers shall be required along all streets constructed with grades in excess of 8% unless an alternative method of storm drainage is approved by the Utility Foreman. Curbs, gutters, and storm sewers may be required by the Planning Commission upon recommendation of the Utility Foreman in any subdivision where they are deemed necessary for proper drainage.
B. As a general policy the Planning Commission shall require curbs, gutters, and storm sewers in all multi-family and nonresidential subdivisions. However, the determination of need shall be made during each subdivision review and upon the recommendation of the Utility Foreman, the Planning Commission shall determine the best system for accommodating surface drainage needs upon the project design and natural topographic features of the site in question.
SECTION 407: BLOCKS
The following regulations shall govern the design layout of blocks:
A. Irregularly shaped blocks, those intended for cul-de-sacs or loop streets, and those containing interior parks or playgrounds, may be approved by the Commission if properly designed and located and if the maintenance of interior public spaces is covered by agreements.
C. No block, shall be longer than fifteen hundred (1500) feet and the block shall accommodate two (2) tiers of lots, except where unusual topography or other exceptional physical circumstances exist.
SECTION 408: LOTS
The following regulations should govern the design and layout of lots:
A. The lot arrangement and design should be such that all lots provided satisfactory building sites, properly related to topography and character of surrounding development.
B. All lots shall conform to or exceed the requirements of these subdivision regulations and the zoning district requirements for the district in which they are located and the use for which they are intended. Where soil or other drainage conditions are of such nature that they do not meet the requirements of the Planning Commission for the proper operation of wells and septic tanks and other on-site waste disposal systems, the size of the lots in the subdivision shall be increased to meet at least the minimum required standards required to meet the proper Planning Commission regulations.
C. Each lot shall front (abut) on a public street except lots fronting on private streets.
D. All side lot lines shall be at right angles to street lines and radial to curved, street lines, except where the Commission determines that a variation to this rule would provide a better layout.
E. Lots with double frontage shall be avoided except where the Commission determines that it is essential to provide separation of residential development from arterial streets.
F. No corner lot shall have a width at the building of less than eighty (80) feet.
G. The "panhandle" of a panhandle lot as defined in section II of these regulations shall have a minimum width of twenty (20) feet and shall not exceed three hundred (300) feet in length.
H. All lots, except lots which contain an area of five (5) acres or more, shall be designed not to exceed an approximate 3:1 depth to width ratio unless some characteristic peculiar to the site renders such ratio to be undesirable or impractical. The computation of the lot depth to width ratio shall not include the "panhandle" of a panhandle type lot as defined in Section II of these regulations. In this respect, the Planning Commission shall seriously discourage the creation of extremely long, narrow lots which represent an expedient method of utilizing existing road frontage.
I. Lots containing five (5) acres or more subject to subdivision regulations shall not be less than two hundred fifty (250) feet in width at any location ( except "pie shaped " lots along the bubbles of permanent cul-de-sacs); they should be of such shape and dimensions as to render the possible re subdivision of any such parcels at some later date into lots and streets which meet the requirements of these regulations.
SECTION 409: EASEMENTS
A. Public utility easements at least twenty (20) feet in total width may be required along the rear and sides of lots where needed for the accommodation of a public utility or for sanitary structures. Surface drainage easements at least twenty (20) ft. in total width may also be required upon recommendation of the Utility Foreman. Where deemed necessary by the Planning Commission an additional easement width shall be provided.
B. The subdivider shall provide easement for storm drainage purposes which conform substantially with the lines of any natural water courses, channels, streams, or creeks which traverse the subdivision or any new channel, which is established to substitute for a natural watercourse, channel, stream or creek. Such rights-of-way or easements shall be of a width which will provide for the maintenance needs of the channel and incidental structures as determined by the Planning Commission.
SECTION 410: PUBLIC WATER SUPPLY
Where the property to be subdivided involves twenty (20) or more building lots or twenty (20) or more dwelling units and where the property to be subdivided is located within 1500 ft. of a public water main, the water main (s) shall be extended by the subdivider and water service shall be provided for each building lot or dwelling unit.
However, regardless of the number of building lots or dwelling units, where the property to be subdivided is located within 500 ft. of a public water main, the water main (s) shall be extended by the subdivider and water service shall be provided for each building lot or dwelling unit. This requirement is, however, not applicable to minor subdivision as they are defined in this resolution and the Ohio Revised Code.
SECTION 411: SANITARY SEWERS:
Where the property to be subdivided is located within 500 ft. of a public sanitary sewer system, public sanitary sewers shall be installed to serve all lots. However, sanitary sewers shall not be required where the installation of sanitary sewers are contrary to the rules and regulations of the Village of New Richmond Utility Department. This requirement is, however, not applicable to minor subdivisions as they are defined in this resolution and the Ohio Revised Code.
Where public sanitary sewers are not required or provided, the subdivider shall provide:
A. A central treatment plant, provided that such central treatment plant is installed in accordance with state and Clermont County Health Department requirements; or
B. When individual disposal systems are to be used, the developer must provide the Planning Commission with written verification, from the Clermont County Health Department, that the lots and proposed systems meet adopted department standards.
SECTION 412: PHYSICAL CONSIDERATIONS
Subdivisions should be planned to take advantage of the topography of the land, to economize in the construction of drainage facilities, to reduce the amount of danger, to minimize destruction of trees and topsoil and to preserve such natural features as water courses, unusual rock formations, large trees, sites of historical significance and other assets which if preserved, will add attractiveness and value to the subdivision and the community.
SECTION 413: FLOOD PLAIN
A. As a safety measure for the protection of the health and welfare of the people of the Village of New Richmond, the commission shall not approve any subdivision located in the Flood Plain Area. If the subdivision is located in said area, the commission may approve the subdivision provided the developer or subdivider agrees to perform such improvements set forth in the New Richmond Flood Plain Ordinance.
B. If a stream flows through, or adjacent to, the proposed subdivision, the plat shall provide for a storm water easement or drainage right-of-way along the stream for a floodway of at least twenty (20) feet or wider if needed. The floodway easement shall be wide enough to provide for future enlargement of the stream channels as adjacent areas become more highly developed and runoff rates are increased.
C. Approval shall not be given for streets within a subdivision which would be subject to flooding. All streets must be located at elevations which will make them flood free in order that no portion of the subdivision would become isolated by floods.
SECTION 414: PUBLIC OPEN SPACE
The Planning Commission urges every subdivider to provide open space for such associated uses as parks, playgrounds, schools, etc., to a degree commensurate with the size. Density and nature of the proposed development. Where an adopted master exists for parks, schools, etc., and where such plans pertain to the tract to be subdivided, the Planning Commission shall require the space requirements of the plan to be incorporated into the subdivision design. This shall be accomplished by dedication, reservation for use, acquisition, or any other method acceptable to the Planning Commission that would not place an unreasonable burden on the subdivider.

REQUIREMENTS FOR SPECIAL DEVELOPMENTS
SECTION 501: GENERAL PROVISIONS
Special Developments are separate entities with distinct characteristics which are intended to be in harmony with the natural site features and surrounding developments. Conventional design standards contained in Article VI may be waived and modified by the degree necessary to achieve the intent of the special development. However the project must clearly demonstrate that the natural features of the site are being preserved and that the attributes of the project could not be achieved with strict adherence to conventional regulations. Projects which are designed primarily to circumvent conventional regulations shall not be approved.
SECTION 502: PLANNED UNIT DEVELOPMENTS:
It is the intent of these regulations to accommodate creative and imaginative Community and Planned unit Developments and to permit utilization of those innovations in land development technology which are in the best interest of the Village of New Richmond. It is the purpose of section 702 to waive design requirements by the degree necessary to accomplish the following objectives:
A. The conservation of natural amenities of the landscape.
B. The creation of functional and interesting residential areas.
C. The provision of readily accessible open space.
D. The separation of pedestrian and vehicular circulation.
E. The provision of a necessary complement of community facilities.
The developer must however comply with the appropriate zoning regulations if applicable, and the review requirements of these regulations. If the project is planned in an un zoned area, the Planning Commission may approve the development provided that the density of the project does not exceed five (5) units per gross acre, the intent and objectives of these regulations are met, and the developer provides all necessary information which may be required by the Commission to make an appropriate decision.
A. OPEN SPACE: A major element of the community or Planned unit Development is privately owned or publicly owned common property within the development. These developments usually contain such features as an internal park network abutting home sites, recreational facilities, and preservation of natural amenities. A Home Owners Association should be established to provide for the maintenance of all properties held in common.
B. PRIVATE STREETS: Private streets may be permitted in Community or Planned unit Developments provided they meet the following requirements:
1. All developments shall be constructed to satisfy the same requirements set out in these regulations and all other village specifications and requirements for the construction of public streets.
2. A Home Owners Association or other appropriate method is established to maintain the street system.
3. Private streets should not be planned to be extended to adjacent properties.
C. PUBLIC STREETS: The Planning Commission may require certain streets within Community or Planned Development to be public if it determines that the project density necessitates the use of public streets and that traffic connections are required to adjacent plats or developments for adequate circulation.
D. SANITARY SEWER LINES AND APPURTENANCES: All sanitary sewer lines and appurtenances and water lines constructed within a community or Planned unit Development shall be built under the supervision of the Village Utility Foreman to the specifications adopted by that office after the necessary inspection fee has been posted. Such facilities will be provided with easements satisfying the requirements of the Village Administrator's Office.
E. STAGING OF NONRESIDENTIAL CONSTRUCTION: If a Community or Planned Unit Development contains nonresidential uses, these uses may be constructed first, but only if the Planning Commission finds and records its findings on the Final Development Plan that the nonresidential uses are consistent with the Comprehensive Plan for the community even though the residential area of the Planned Development is not built or not completed.
F. DEED OUT: In community and Planned unit Developments, the Planning Commission will permit the transfer off the fee simple title for parcels of land large enough to accommodate a unit of attached town houses, "row houses" or patio homes and its accompanying patio, garden or small yard area. This "zero lot line" method of title transfer shall be known as "deed out" and shall only be permitted in projects developed in accordance with the intent and objectives of these regulations and in accordance with a recorded development plan for the project. The design of all deed out projects must however satisfy zoning requirements governing the tract in question.
G. CONDOMINIUMS: Chapter 5311 of the Ohio Revised Code provides for the recording of ownership of condominiums. Condominium ownership does not excuse compliance with these regulations whenever appropriate.
