    Purpose: Under Brazoria County Subdivision Regulations, a person dividing property must, in general, have a subdivision plat prepared and submit that plat to Commissioners Court for approval. That requirement has been established to promote the public welfare through orderly land development, taking into account health, safety, transportation and drainage issues. The Court has established a variance procedure to allow certain types of property divisions without having a plat approved by Commissioners Court. This application and the additional items requested will enable the Court to determine whether it is appropriate to grant a variance for the proposed division.

TO: Brazoria County Commissioners Court
