A property owner may desire to divide his property into lots. Oakland Township’s Land Use and Subdivision Procedures Ordinance provides that you can only have one residential dwelling per parcel of property. If you wish to sell a part of your property, add a rental unit or another dwelling to your land, you must subdivide.
Before your drawings can be filed at the Courthouse, all Subdivision and Lot Line Revisions must be approved by the Oakland Township Planning Commission, Butler County’s Planning Commission, and the Oakland Township Board of Supervisors.
It is important to note that the Oakland Township Board of Supervisors will not sign off on any Subdivision and/or Lot Line Revision until the Township and County Planning Commissions signatures are on the drawings.
