Subdivision Regulations

The Planning Board is the body responsible for administering the subdivision regulations. Any party considering subdividing land into lots which do not have adequate frontage must apply to the Planning Board for approval. The Planning Board, with assistance from OPCD staff, review subdivision proposals to ensure they meet the City and State requirements and fit well with the character of Melrose. A copy of the Subdivision Regulations may be purchased at the Office of Planning and Community Development in City Hall.
