SUBDIVISIONS

A subdivision is the creation or division of a lot, tract, parcel or other unit of land for the immediate or future purpose of sale, building development or redevelopment, for residential, recreational, industrial, commercial or public uses. The process for subdividing depends on the number of lots being created, the size of the lots being created and the type of subdivision

Wyoming State Statutes require developers of all subdivisions to obtain a review and recommendations from the local conservation district, regarding soil suitability for various urban uses, erosion control, flooding hazards and sedimentation. By state mandate UCCD is responsible for all Uinta County subdivision reviews.

Uinta County Conservation District (UCCD) uses the NRCS web soil survey to provide information and recommendations based on the soil types found within the subdivision area.  Other resource concerns related to water, vegetation and wildlife are also addressed. UCCD provides concerns and recommendations only, they cannot approve or disapprove a proposed subdivision.  Every subdivision review completed by UCCD is provided to the County Commissioners and County Planner for consideration.

The 'Uinta County Code of the West' gives valuable information about the ethics we hold as residents when it comes to living, building, and developing in Uinta County
