Subdivisions & Lot Splits

Process of Dividing Land


The division of land in Blue Earth County is not always as simple as creating a new property line. Often times a survey is required and in some instances a subdivision plat is required to properly proceed with the splitting of an individual piece of property.

Subdivision plats and lot splits are taken before the Blue Earth County Planning Commission in the form of a public hearing. The Planning Commission makes a formal recommendation to the Blue Earth County Board of Commissioners. The Board of Commissioners take final action on the request.
